Ariel...a job offer from Steve Martin's group (NEI) back when Animal Kingdom first opened is what brought me to FL. At that time my bird experience was limited and I didn't care what I trained...I just wanted to be a better trainer. I worked closely with Steve back then and learned a lot. My old mentor from the St Louis Zoo says that I gained my MBA in animal training while working with Steve. I'd be happy to discuss your future with you sometime if you like.
