Former volunteer for the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. I have experience working with sharks, rays, octopuses, eels, inverts, and fish of all varieties. I care deeply about the environment, and worked towards a career in entomology for nearly 7 years before Trump defunded the program I was in. Now I study toy design, and hope to instill a sense of respect and love for the environment in the younger generations by providing the world with toys and other products that can teach the importance of compassion and wonder that mother nature brings us.
I started keeping roaches as a food source for my leopard gecko, Moby, but as the colony expanded, I grew to love them as my pets as well. I have kept a variety of animals as pets, many of them as rescues, and so far the roaches have been one of the most rewarding invertebrates I've kept thus far. I plan on doubling the colony once I'm financially stable and exploring what other species in the hobby have to give, much as I have done with fish and aquatic inverts before.
