Emmanuel’s passion for working with animals all started after he took a position working as a grooming assistant at his local pet shop. Hungry for even more interaction with animals, he began to spend his time volunteering at an animal shelter and later on became a veterinary assistant.

Emmanuel is a certified dog trainer, helping to train canines as therapy animals for hospitals and schools. He is an avid wildlife photographer who enjoys spending his spare time scuba diving or hanging out with his dogs and cats.
