"I have never liked the word "Wrangler to describe what I do. The definition of "Wrangle" is as follows:

1. a person in charge of horses or other livestock on a ranch.
2. a person engaging in a lengthy and complicated quarrel or dispute.

I believe that I am on a different level with several different species (most of them considered "outcasts" or "pests"), many of which are truly not tameable. It is through both conditioning, and a key understanding of their behavior that I am able to interact with these animals on level that many would consider "spiritual".

Some call me a professional snake and/or bug wrangler, I call it seamless interaction and respect for those creatures which society sometimes has a hard time sharing space with...."
