Jeff has spent almost the entirety of his life fully immersed in the aquarium industry. From working as an aquarium service technician as part of his father’s aquarium shop to operating one of the first commercial live rock collection and wholesale companies, to starting the first commercially successful marine ornamental aquaculture facility, to owning and operating several aquarium related companies, Jeff has truly seen it all. Despite all of his successes, his heart remains with custom aquarium systems. It’s how he was first able to stand out in a crowded industry, and the decades of experience and expertise are on full display in every Reef Aquaria Design project.
