Elise Hugus

Elise Hugus is a WHOI digital media producer and writer. She grew up in the backyard of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and from a young age, reveled in the stories she would overhear from scientists returning from sea.

The ocean beckoned Hugus to travel far and wide, first to the communications and journalism program at Concordia University in Montreal, and later to study at the Danish School of Journalism in Aarhus, Denmark. After a stint freelancing as a radio stringer and blogger from Eastern Europe, the ocean called her back home to share her fascination with the blue planet by founding the Cape Cod-based video production company UnderCurrent Productions.
