About the Author

Hello and thanks for taking the time to visit my website! My name is Michael Ouvrard, and I am currently a Junior and a biomedical science major and chemistry minor at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. I grew up in Nashville, Tennessee where I developed my love for the outdoors, fishing and boating in particular. My enthusiasm for fishing led me to picking Pterois volitans as my species for creating this website as a project for my organismal biology class.

My passion for fishing and boating motivated me to earn my United States Coast Guard Captain’s License in 2007. This allowed me to help my dad run fishing charters during the summer in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin, on the Door County Peninsula. Catch Five Charters is the name our business, so please feel free to visit the other website I created! www.catchfivecharters.com

Other interests I have besides fishing, boating, and the outdoors include soccer, running, and weightlifting. After college, I plan on attending pharmacy school to become a Doctor of Pharmacy.

Thanks for visiting my website, and if you have any comments or questions, do not hesitate to contact me via the email address provided at the bottom of the screen!
