Our Mission

MorphMarket provides services that support and advance the herpetoculture industry. We promote the efficient, legitimate, and ethical commerce and keeping of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.

MorphMarket connects breeders and keepers in the largest marketplace of its kind in the world. We are now creating educational content and have more on the way.

MorphMarket

Our Team

For many years, MorphMarket was run by one guy. We now have an entire team of professionals dedicated to improving these services for the community. Below is our core team. Not pictured are additional volunteers and experts who contribute in the forums and on an as-needed basis.

It's our pleasure to serve you.

John

John

CEO, Founder

John is passionate about building services that advance the herp industry and delight its hobbyists. His love for animals began as a child, but he only discovered the online reptile community in 2014 while researching pets for his family. The lack of a modern platform inspired the creation of MorphMarket. John has been involved with software since a young age. Professionally, he has focused on leading projects at startup and research companies, particularly in the area of language processing. He counts it a privilege to now focus his full time energy on serving this community. Currently, John and his family enjoy a number of pets including a dumeril's boa, bearded dragon, dog, and two pet rats.

Fey

Fey

Customer Success

Fey is a part of the Customer Success Team and helps our customers on a daily basis. Fey’s average day consists of assisting customers, making coffee, and bubble-wrapping iguanas (just kidding!). They have a history in handling issues, both professionally and casually, and have made it their personal goal to make a career out of it. Besides work, Fey likes to dabble in creative writing, crochet, and playing D&D. They are also a “cat parent” to an adorable orange cat named ‘Tobias Reginald Summergale’ (say that five times fast!). Most of Fey’s experience with animals has been limited to cats, dogs, rats, and ferrets, but they are determined to learn more about reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates not only to better assist our customers, but also because these creatures are fascinatingly beautiful.
