I have been supplying marine invertebrates and fish to researchers, educators, pharmaceutical companies, and public aquariums for almost 20 years.

While I was in college, completing my BS in marine biology, I worked for 4 years as an aquarist at a local public aquarium that dealt exclusively with local coldwater species. After I graduated in 2000, I started diving and collecting full- time for a marine biological supply company here in Los Angeles. When the owners retired 3 years later, I continued on as the chief collector and co- owner of that same company for another 6 years. In 2008, I set out on my own and founded my current company, South Coast Bio-Marine.

10 years later, South Coast Bio-Marine continues to serve our long-time customers, and continues to gain new customers. I am proud of what has been accomplished so far, and looking forward to many more years of service to the scientific and educational communities.
