He has worked on fishing boats off the New England coast in the dead of winter and sold Christmas trees for 36 hours straight in NYC. Marc is a gifted musician and the only dread lock wearing Eagle Scout we know who blasts Beethoven on his car radio.
Lorraine Gabler and Janet Welch are the heart and soul of Two Docks. Over the past 25 years they have worked together at various enterprises. At Two Docks they carefully examine each clam as it passes through the grading process insuring the highest quality product on the market. They also are in charge of sanitation, clean up, crew nutrition and morale--quite a job considering the 4 men they work with. Both are in the witness protection program and only the vaguest image of each is visible in the above image.
Aaron Jr. has a PhD in Plant Pathology from North Carolina State University. He has decades of experience growing citrus and tomatoes in Florida. After retiring from his long and successful career as a research scientist and agricultural consultant, he embarked on a second career as a shellfish farmer and deck hand. He is the real Doc in Two Docks.
Stephen Owen earned his degree in marine biology at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington and a master's degree in aquaculture from the University of Miami. Since he was a little boy, he knew he wanted to grow "things" in the ocean--remarkable for a kid from the middle of Alabama. Stephen manages our processing plant, quite a feat considering we process thousands of clams at a time. He is an Eagle Scout and world class soccer referee.
