I am originally from Hayward, CA where my Dad was an original member of the first koi club in America the Golden Gate Carp Society. I first attended the first koi show in 1972 and have been hooked on koi ever since. I am triple certified and formed the ZNA Carolina Koi Chapter. I have been fortunate to have won many awards including the last NC Koi and Watergarden Show where I had the Grand Champion, Reserve Champion, Mature Champion and Adult Champion. I am honored to be able to meet koi kichi from all over the world and love to teach about koi. The best part about keeping koi is the wonderful friends you meet. I am married to the most wonderful woman, Mary Ann, who supports my koi hobby and my daughter, Haley, already has an excellent eye in selecting her koi.
