My mother's French family has lived in Trinidad for two hundred odd years and my father's Irish side for about 70 years. I am 52 years old and have been married to the same great lady, Susan, for 27 years. We have four wonderful kids ranging in age from 28 to 13. I am an avid sailor, conservationist and staunch Catholic.

I graduated from the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada, majoring in marketing. In my current job I am the Executive Manager of Resort Developments, Angostura Ltd. The parent company makes Angostura Bitters and is also the largest rum producer in the English-speaking Caribbean.

One of the projects in which I am involved is a 750 acre environmentally integrated resort in Tobago which has 14 lakes on it. I am landscaping one of the lakes in particular, trying to make it the most special and unique on the development. That's how I ended up hunting for Victoria and it will be the highlight of this pond.

 I have been an avid aquarist for the last 40 years. In recent times I have been collecting and growing tropical underwater plants which I fertilize with CO2. I plan to use this method with Victoria seedlings. I currently have five small ponds at home.
We found these waterlilies growing in a Tobago reserve, many miles away and up a river by canoe. They have been tentatively identified as N. lotus and N. pulchella.
