Hi, I'm Chris! My reptile collection started out simple. I purchased a couple of bearded dragons and a few snakes and, before too long, I found myself getting more and more reptiles. Now there are over 65 animals that we care for at EpicStyle. Over time, I began researching about how to care for each of these wonderful animals and set out to make my dream for EpicStyle a reality. I also began to learn more about breeding reptiles. Being able to see the different babies produced over time is thrilling and creating "living art" is simply awesome! Providing quality pets for our customers is always a must. My family has inspired me to share my passion for reptiles and that's what I want to do in any way possible.

Hi, I'm Karen. If you would have told me ten years ago that' I'd have over 50 lizards, snakes, and a gator in my family home, I'd have thought you were crazy! Yet here we are...and I wouldn't have it any other way! I love supporting my family and encouraging our kids to share about our animals with others. I'm at my best when I get to show other people who are just getting involved in reptile care what to do and how to care for their cherished pet.
Often times, I work behind the scenes for EpicStyle, helping with the necessary paperwork and the clerical side of our business. On off hours, you'll find me snacking on tacos, enjoying margaritas and spending time with my friends and family.

Hi, I'm Dez. I'm 11 years old and I help care for our reptiles by cleaning their cages, feeding, and handling them (which is my favorite part!). My excitement for reptiles started when my parents would take me to local reptile shows. Luck was on my side at my first show when I won a free corn snake. It makes me happy to work with all our different animals outside of their cage or enclosure, but I shine best when I help my dad present at parties or events. I get to share with the audience what type of animal it is, along with where it’s from and what we've named it.
When I grow up, I want to be a zookeeper that works with reptiles. Being a part of our family business is an exciting, new adventure! I'm so glad I have a chance to work with animals. It’s the best.

Hi, I'm Zariah. The youngest of the bunch, checking in at 4 years old. Don't let my size fool you as I am full of that reptile passion and energy too. Something I look forward to the most is going on trips to reptile shows. (I'm ready to wake up early every morning for one if I could.) Seeing my friends at the show makes it that much better.
This might sound silly, but snakes are my favorite reptile.
