At SEHS Isaiah is an active member of FFA where he has received his State Degree in Wildlife. He also enjoys playing varsity tennis and being a part of the 4-H Club. Isaiah is a proud member of the Ogeechee Audubon Society and the Georgia Ornithological Society. From painting and drawing at a young age, Isaiah has developed into a skilled naturalist artist, focusing on the beauty of birds of the Lowcountry.

The goal is to lead bird walks that connect people with nature. Isaiah recently launched an e-commerce business, The Rookery Collection, which offers an eclectic blend of art and home décor. His passion for birding has gained state, national and international recognition with the recent accolades of becoming a brand ambassador for L.L.

Isaiah plans to major in Environment & Sustainability at Cornell University. His ultimate goal is to own a coastal research and avitourism center.
