When I was a kid, I wanted to be an environmentalist. I was always outside and wanted to save the planet.

I work at the Aquarium because I’m a huge supporter of its mission. I’m so proud to be part of an organization that’s working toward making the world a better place for us, wildlife and wild places.

My day starts with checking the animals and systems in my gallery to make sure they’re happy and everything is operating normally.

If I could be any fish in the Aquarium, I would be a seahorse, because the males give birth. It doesn’t get much better than that!

The coolest gadget I use at work is the diving regulator, a device that makes it possible to breathe underwater.

A perfect day at work for me would be spending the day offshore collecting small animals in sargassum.

On the weekend I like to spend time with my family, friends and pets.

My favorite part of my job is participating in conservation and research projects with other institutions, such as the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Cape Island Turtle Project and SCDNR’s In-Water Sea Turtle Research.

If I could share a meal with any fish, it would be the octopus. Blue crabs are mighty tasty!

An animal I am passionate about is the jellyfish. They get a bad rap even though they are gorgeous, delicate animals. Culturing and caring for them is a challenge but so rewarding.

If I could share one conservation tip with you, it would be: Reduce, reuse and recycle! Even the smallest efforts make a difference.
