Apologies, with all that has been going on personally and professionally this year I'm just now getting back to somewhere stable where I can address some of the issues on the site.

Story
Tagline
"It's not a desire; it's an obsession to share my knowledge with people interested in herpetoculture."
Introduction

I currently own and operate the Reptile Apartment Group of Websites. HerpHouseMag is a 100% Green and Subscriber supported digital #reptiles magazine. Reptile Apartment is the original site 'hatching' out later into Reptile Apartment Canada. This wasn't before 'hatching' Reptile Livingroom 1.0 which has recently become Reptile Livingroom 2.0 Live! This is a joint operation between ColdBlooded Publishing and HerpHouseMag as well as the entire Reptile Apartment Group.

I've also done some freelance work regarding reptiles and have been published numerous times in magazines such as Reptilia, Reptiles, Reptiles USA, Reptile Care, and TFH Publishing who published my original Uromastyx manuscript. I'm the former Founder of Southern California Wildlife, and am an amateur herpetologist, and expert on San Diego-based reptiles and their habitat. Additionally, I have extensive experience with exotic species from all over the world. I have worked within the pet industry for over a decade and served as Editor for the San Diego Herpetological Society. I've personally handled well over 200 various species.  

My main goal is to educate people regarding #reptiles period. There's just too much inaccurate information out there. I focus on living in small environments, primarily apartments, on the unique challenges of keeping a reptile or insects within these smaller spaces. There’s an alarming lack of actionable data on this topic and a lack of information or an abundance of misinformation is impacting the quality of life for reptiles and insects everywhere.
