Once out of college with a background in accounting and marketing I began working for an animal media firm in NYC in 91 handling all kinds of exotics for media . Ready for a new life in 97 I began managing a privately owned, U.S.D.A. licensed big cat facility in Ft Lauderdale, Fl. Where I fell in totally in love with everything about big cats. Tigers For Tomorrow was founded in 1999 and Shortly after I began at The Zoological Society of the Palm Beaches during a 50 million redevelopment. In 2002, The Tigers For Tomorrow Preserve was established in Ft. Pierce Florida, only to do battle with 4 hurricanes during 2004/5. November of 2005 Tigers for Tomorrow moved to Untamed Mountain, a 140 acre preserve at the gateways to the Appalachian mountains. These days that’s where you’ll find me. I am hoping that by serving as a board member of the FCF I can help the membership and board achieve their new mission and excite a new generation of keepers to aspire to be passionate, empathetic and proactive when caring for animals.
