    Here's a short bio on Austin:

    Austin is the Director of Residential and Commerical accounts at Tenji Aquarium Design + Build based in Monterey, California. Tenji specializes in custom aquatic systems for public aquariums, residential, and commercial clients. Prior to joining Tenji last fall, Austin founded and owned Aqua Box. He has been in the aquarium industry since 2002, is known for building immaculate aquarium systems, and is recognized throughout the industry for his knowledge and understanding of marine fish breeding, care, and quarantine practices. Austin has been published in Reefs Magazine, Reefs.com, and Reef Edition Magazine. He has presented at MACNA (2016, 2017), Michigan Coral Expo (2016, 2017), and the Manhattan Reef Swap (2016).

    During his free time, he can be found diving the temperate waters around the Monterey Peninsula or tide pooling with his family. He has a soft spot for Pomacanthidae, particularly twilight zone reef dwellers. He’s been an avid SCUBA diver since the age of 12 and consistently seeks new aquatic adventures.

    unfortunately Jeremy who used to do that is no longer with the club, so probably not.
     
  7. Hello GIRS members!

    I am very excited to meet everyone attending Saturday's meeting! :D

    Although they have been updated since, both of the presentations on Saturday have been filmed before, so I will post the YouTube links after the meeting (to prevent spoilers for those attending) for anyone who can't make the event.

    I would be interested in watching the YouTube videos since I was unable to make it yesterday due to the weather.
