I'm Eve Taylor.

I was born and raised in balmy South Florida, and love saltwater + sand in my toes.

I love the ocean, and I LOVE to teach.

After getting my degree in biology and a master of science education, I spent 16 years teaching marine science to kids of all ages.

Sharing ocean love became my purpose (well…porpoise)! 


I dreamed of reaching beyond the walls of my classroom to share ocean love around the globe.

So I started Living Porpoisefully...


...And I teamed up with my ocean-loving husband Rett to create children's books.

Neither of us are trained artists, but we were determined to learn! Rett draws everything on paper, and we both hand-paint them with real paint + brushes.

We use the pen name EveRett Taylor.


We created activities, games, crafts, and printable fun sheets for marine educators, parents, and caregivers to use around the globe.

A few places we've reached:


To help spread ocean love + conservation, we opened an online eco-shop

We carefully choose options that are sustainable and kinder to the environment, like recycled fabrics + organic cotton.

Plus, we add our own ocean-loving positive-vibes art designs!

True to my teacher roots, I dreamed of opening a sea school.

So, Rett and I began to create together! So far, we've shared our adventures in Florida's coastal lagoons, and can't wait to add more courses.

Our virtual courses and in-person sessions are high energy, adventure-based, and hands-on!
