Director for Membership
Joshua McWilliams grew up in sunny Florida with a love for animals, he even won his first goldfish at a fair named snowflake that lived 10 years. Joshua’s involvement with 4-H and the Future Farmers of America led him down the path of raising, breeding, showing and selling many different types of animals, including rabbits (Mini Rex, Netherland Dwarf, and Fuzzy Lops) and Lamancha and Toggenburg dairy goats. He is a former member of the American Rabbit Breeders Assocation and American Dairy Goat Association; his stock have won numerous championship titles in competition.
After attending some college, Joshua decided to pursue a career in floral design. He left his life on the farm and found his way to Tampa Bay, Florida, where he now resides. His success in the floral industry has led him all over the country participating in floral design competitions. He loves anything to do with creativity and avant-garde design.
Searching for a hobby involving animals that he could raise living in a city high-rise condominium, Joshua found the goldfish fancy. His interest sparked his thirst for knowledge about the fancy, which brought him to where he is today. He jumped in head first with a breeding program concentrating on Butterfly Telescope and plans to expand his focus to other breeds in the near future. Joshua has also joined a few other select breeders around North America in the Blue Eggfish Phoenix preservation project.
This new comer to the fancy has a lot to offer and has an eagerness to excel in his goldfish breeding and grooming efforts, and contributed widely as TGC’s Membership Director.
