I have dealt with wildlife my whole life. My journey started in Pittsburgh, PA at the age of 10 when I had my first crocodilian experience by purchasing a caiman. I also caught my first rattlesnake at the age of 11 (Do not try that at home!). I moved to South Florida at the age of 12, working with one of the greatest wildlife experts Mike "Skeet" Johns.
I learned about many native and exotic wildlife species and how to handle them. By learning from Skeet and many others I was doing venomous and non-venomous snake shows, as well as alligator wrestling by the age of 13.
I have taught alligator wrestling and one of my best students, Jimmy Riffle, became one of the best alligator wrestlers in the world. When he approached me 3 years ago to work with him I was glad to jump in with both feet. I am very passionate about wildlife and I am proud to be working with the Gatorboys. I'm helping to not only save wildlife, but I also get to educate the public.
