Tanner Hoss is one half of Oceanic Awareness Collaboration and an asset to any business he becomes a part of. As co-founder, his role in OAC naturally developed as the firm business hand in the grand picture. He was a key force for developing OAC into an official 501(c)3 in the short amount of time that it did take. Tanner was born and raised in Southern California, seemingly always having some sort of business endeavor on the forefront of his mind from a young age beginning in high school. In 2009 Tanner moved to Newport Beach, CA and became increasingly aware of the non-biodegradable plastic plague that has been the first and foremost environmental issue OAC has focused on. Tanner also see’s the invaluable need to bridge the gap between the scientific issues and the youth culture.
