Most of you know who I am, but for some I may be a new face (or in this case a new name on a website) so I will introduce myself and tell you just who I am. I have been in the reptile hobby for about 2 decades now, but before I was serious about the reptile industry I was little more than addicted to the fish and aquarium industry.
At one point, I had 31 aquariums ranging in size from 25 gallons to 250 gallons. I was a national leading authority on aquarium plants and brackish water fishes. I served on the Fish and Aquarium Society Board for quite some time as well. Soon, my love for reptiles grew and as I acquired more and more species into my collection, I was quickly running out of room(as I am sure some of you can relate) and began to sell off the aquariums one by one to make more room. I have made monumental connections over the last 20 years and have the pleasure of being friends with many great industry leading breeders, vendors, distributors and wholesalers.
From day one, I have always wanted to build a strong community and as such I moderate 8 of the largest reptile groups on facebook on a national level. I pretty much live my free time in these community groups helping answer questions and if I can't help I refer them to a trusted someone who can. I have imported and exported reptiles to/from all over the globe and as such gained experience with the many official governmental offices and bodies that govern our industry(CFIA, CITES, FISH AND WILDLIFE)
