Raised on North Haven Island, Zeb and his father Adam operate North Haven Oyster Company. He grew up in a fishing family with 4 siblings and has a 250+ year maternal history of fishing and farming on the Island. He spent most of his childhood and early adult years working in the stern of a boat for his dad. Zeb bought his first lobster boat when he was 14, and fished full time for 5 years after graduating high school. After seeing environmental potential, he decided to sell his lobstering business and transition into running the oyster farm alongside his father, who started the business in 1999. Most of Zeb’s island ancestors lived and farmed on the Middle Road, where his family land and North Haven Oyster Company lie. He currently lives on a houseboat where he passes time with his sweetheart Edith Gawler, playing banjo, writing songs about fishing, the sea, and looking out of the kitchen window at their 22’ friendship sloop.
Oakley is a creature of the sea. He grew up on the small neighboring island of Greens and enjoys spending his days on the water. He is the father of twins, Tig and Wes, and is usually in the company of his trusty dog, Finn. Though not musical himself, he is a great lover of music and celebrates it through dancing. Ask about getting out for a boat cruise with his charter operation, Osprey Adventures, while you’re on North Haven. The islands can only be truly experienced from a boat.

I come from a long line of kings that never existed and I have no relation to either Walt Whitman, William Blake, or Blake Lively. Vermont is home, but Brooklyn and Maine have my heart as well. I helped make Vimeo for a long time and then dabbled in VR, but
I'm more fond of leaves and rocks than ones and zeros. Experience and connection are my currencies of choice and I am currently experimenting with its possibilities with Sterling Forest Lodge.
I hope to write a book one day (about anything) so I can lead this bio with that accomplishment.
