Hurricane Island is very close to home for Oakley, who grew up on the neighboring Greens Island and spent much of his life on boats in Penobscot Bay. He is an avid sailor and has spent some of the most rewarding moments of his life aboard Ocean Classroom’s tall ships. Oakley's undergrad education consisted of three years at Middlebury College focusing on environmental studies and creative arts and two years at Prescott College focusing on environmental education and adventure education. He has been sharing his passion for the Maine islands and outdoor activities by facilitating meaningful experiences for students on and around Hurricane for the past two summers. He is a certified WFR and Leave No Trace (LNT) Master Educator. Fun fact: his favorite foods are seafood chowder and grits with eggs and bacon.
