Calvin grew up in Trinidad and Tobago before moving to Rhode Island in 2007. He attended the University of Rhode Island where he received a B.S. in Aquaculture and Fisheries Technology. Prior to moving to Rhode Island Calvin worked in the Department of Marine Resources and Fisheries as a Biological Data Collector and Fisheries Extension Officer. His research interests there included investigating the sexual maturity of the four-winged flying fish (Hirundichthys affinis), biological data collection from experimental gear studies, and underwater data collection and photography as part of a ghost fishing study of abandoned traps. Calvin joined the Northeast Fisheries Observer Program in the summer of 2010 and remained there for two years. He worked out of ports from Maine to Virginia and later took on responsibilities as a trip trainer and evaluated potential Fisheries Observer candidates. Calvin joined the Study Fleet as a Field Scientist and is based out of Narragansett, RI
