I’m constantly amazed and humbled by Turtles. I’ve met many virtually from around the globe and consider them kindred spirits, and friends.

As Turtles ask for things that don’t exist yet, I’ve worked to bring to life. You have noticed if you have been following the journey of the Turtle Club Us Pond.
