Born and raised in Annapolis, Jay is a professional photographer, educator, and publisher. He has worked around the world in the field of fisheries while documenting life on and in the water. The primary focus for his photography is on his home waters of the Chesapeake Bay. In 2016, he published his regionally bestselling book, Working the Water – a documentation of Maryland and Virginia’s seafood industry. He is currently working on his second book, Island Life – a visual narrative of life on the bay’s two inhabited offshore islands, Smith and Tangier. He also serves on the board of Smith Island United.

Jay has a B.S. in Economics from St. Mary’s College of Maryland and two postgraduate degrees in Environmental Sciences.

Ann Schweitzer

Cindy Whittle

Cindy is a retired math teacher and curriculum development specialist. In 2012, Cindy and her husband retired and returned to Annapolis, where she became involved with the AMM as a volunteer in a variety of areas for the Museum becoming intimately involved in all aspects of Museum operations.  She later joined the staff as the Venue Manager and built the program into a successful and robust feature for the Museum. Cindy had served as board president of Monterey Bay Spouse’s Club, as board treasurer of Child Justice in Silver Spring and as an active member of Anne Arundel Women Giving Together.

The Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park (AMM) brings to life the maritime history of Annapolis and inspires deep respect for the Chesapeake Bay. Our mission is to educate youth and adults about the Annapolis area’s rich maritime heritage and the ecology of the Chesapeake Bay through programs, exhibits and community events. We accomplish our mission through exhibits and programming offered at two unique waterfront locations, both on Back Creek.

The McNasby Campus, home to the Annapolis Maritime Museum, is located on the waterfront in Eastport, adjacent to historic Annapolis and is the site of the last remaining oyster packing plant in the area, the McNasby Oyster Company. The Museum is undergoing a renovation and will open at the end of April 2020 with all new exhibits.

In 2016, AMM signed a lease with the City of Annapolis for the Ellen O. Moyer Nature Park at Back Creek. This renovated, 12-acre Park accommodates the Museum’s expanding education programs. An old waterworks building on site has been restored and converted to classrooms to host school programs and summer camps. The acquisition of Park affords AMM a unique opportunity to further expand our award-winning education programs and develop a waterfront maritime themed community attraction.

AMM is a vibrant institution that is in daily use for visitors, classes, lectures, concerts, and community meetings. AMM attracts over 85,000 visitors and locals and educates 12,000 students annually, inspiring environmental stewardship and an appreciation of local maritime history.

Current officers of the board include Carol Sisco, Ph.D., Chairman, Drew Davis, Vice Chairman, Jack Whitelaw, Treasurer and Anne Harrington, Secretary. A  complete list of board members and bios can be found at www.amaritime.org
