About the Owner
I began keeping marine aquariums in 1983 when I was just 10 years old. I kept my first SPS coral, pocillopora damicornis , in 1988. I have always loved SPS corals and clams!
I was the original importer of the Oregon Blue Tort coral back in 1997. Between 1997 and 2005, I owned a saltwater reef store called Waves Marine Aquaria and a website, Ecorals. I was the West Coast Sales Manager at Sunlight Supply in 2011 and 2012.
I've built close to one-hundred different reef aquariums over the course of my career, including several for players in the NBA. Rasheed Wallace, Jermaine O'Neal and Kelvin Cato have each had my handiwork displayed in their homes.
