Area of Strength in the hobby - Not sure if I have a real strength but I am very detailed and a little ocd to get to the bottom of issues. I do a lot of research and will not give recommendations if I have never done it myself or owned the specific piece of equipment.

Years in the hobby - 8 years- I Joined this club in 2013. I never had an aquarium before. I jumped in feet fist with a solid 2 weeks or research (not google!) my first build was a 55g saltwater system. which I then did a build of a 40G breeder before doing a tank transfer of them both to my current 120G system in 2017 I did have my share of ups and down as all reefers do, but in my short 8 years I have learned a lifetime of information.

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reefkeeping - I enjoy other hobbies such as Mtn. biking, hiking, and building things I wish were already made.

Area of Strength in the hobby -
I've been doing this for years. I have strength in maintaining the attitude that I will always have something to learn.

Years in the hobby - 20. I started in freshwater in the late 90's after college. I jumped into reefkeeping in 2001. Around the same time I connected with @MoeK (George Washington of the BRS) on Reefs.org . By 2001 we were meeting up in parking lots and restaurants to trade frags with an ever-growing group of people. By early 2002 I had the honor of co-founding the Boston Reefers Society with a handful of the coolest hobbyists (in my humble opinion) in the area. I served as VP of PR from 2002-2004 and President from 2005-2007. I also served on MASNA board for 3 consecutive years.

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reefkeeping - Family time, Cooking, Mountain Biking, Skiing/Riding, Kayaking and anything outdoors.

Why I chose my screen name - It is my actual name, if my previous answers didn't give that away yet ;)

Area of Strength in the hobby - Water Chemistry and Micro/macrobiology

Years in the hobby - I've had Aquariums since I was 5 years old (25 years) and have had reefs for the past 10 years

Favorite Hobby Outside of Reefkeeping - I keep a lot of freshwater planted tanks and do a lot of planted tank design plus I'm big into terrestrial landscape architecture/design as well. I grew up being raised by a landscape designer/horticulturist so I guess it runs in my blood. I also play a bunch of instruments such as guitar and piano.
