Roderick grew up on the island of Trinidad and Tobago, and has always had a love for the ocean and the animals that live in it. He moved to West Hartford, CT when he was in elementary school. Roderick has made a career out of working with animals. He studied Biology at CCSU, and got his start in the pet services industry at Puppy Center and Aquarium in West Hartford. Since then, he has worked for several independent fish stores. Roderick also worked at Petco for several years as an Aquatic Specialist, then a Department Manager. His love for the aquarium hobby occupies much of his free time- and house- which led him to start Fishin’ Rod’s Aquarium Service. It has long been a dream to open his own store, where he can share his passion and expertise with others.
