David A. Crandall, M.D.

Dave (aka Wolverine) grew up in Salt Lake City, UT. He has a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, MI: GO BLUE!) and an M.D. from Creighton University (Omaha, NE). He's currently in his ophthalmology residency training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI.

Dave got his start in the saltwater hobby seven years ago with a Niger trigger and a Blueline grouper in a tank that was WAY too small (the largest mistake among too many to count). He graduated to reef tanks two years later, shortly after discovering the value of aquarium bulletin boards on the Internet. The little free time he has is spent with his wife and their Norwegian Elkhound. Prior to his recent involvement in the medical profession, he also enjoyed playing basketball, reading and mountain-biking.

His bulletin board user name comes from his alma mater, not from the comic book character (though Wolverine is his favorite of the X-men). He is one of the moderators of the Reef Fishes forum.
