G.R. Bliss is a lifelong animal lover & keeper, with a specific passion for herps.
Since retiring from the entertainment & tech industries a few years ago (though, he’s not left either world, completely), he moved to East Tennessee, and now makes a living as an artist and creative consultant.
With his passion for all living things – especially his snakes – the opportunity to work with a statewide organization, to improve and promote all aspects of the herp keeping community in Tennessee, was one he could not pass up.
Favorite CHET experience:
“Definitely the kids! Especially the ones that show up all loaded up with all of that negative stuff that so many people have been drilling into their heads… and after a few minutes with the animals, you just see that light switch on, like ‘Hey… these things are AWESOME!’ and they’re grinning ear-to-ear! At that point, you know that you’ve helped them learn that it’s a good thing to LEARN!”
