About Thalassa:

Thalassa Raasch is a wandering Minnesotan. As a teenager she made her way east, living in most New England states culminating with her 2010 graduation from Harvard College. After that, Thalassa worked as a teacher for high school semester programs including The Mountain School in Vershire, Vermont (where she taught English and Chopping Down Trees) and the Vermont Intercutural Semesters in Ladakh, India (where she taught Radio Documentary and Ladakhi.) Back from her travels, Thalassa attended Salt in the fall of 2012 to pursue her dream of making a career as a visual, interdisciplinary storyteller.


She currently resides in Portland, ME and is available for work. All professional and friendly inquiries are welcome! Contact her at
