Lance then became employed by ICM/Reynolds Polymer where he designed and installed custom aquariums for projects all over the globe.

Lance soon moved to South Florida where he began with Living Color Enterprises, designing and installing large commercial and residential custom aquariums all over the world.

While with LCEI, Lance had the opportunity to be in the center of and coordinated the building of the largest aquatic retail store in the USA (2005)…Big Al’s Aquarium Supercenter in Tamarac.  Lance remains very proud of this project to this day and visits frequently.
