About me

Sampling black jellies in San Diego.

I am a professional marine aquarist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, my primary interest being the husbandry of jellyfish. I got my start in the industry at Aquarium of the Pacific and before that had been working in husbandry related jobs since age 17. My first job was at the SEA Lab in Redondo Beach, I have done maintenance on both home and business aquariums and even worked at PetCo for a summer. I received my B.S. in Marine Biology from UC Santa Cruz.

My aim with this site is to provide the latest in jellyfish husbandry, jellyfish news, jellyfish sightings and science.
