David & Jake Engle

David and Jake are a father-and-son writing duo. Jake’s passion for fish began when he was 6 months old during his first trip to Adventure Aquarium. That passion has only grown (and rubbed off on David, as Jake teaches him everything there is to know!) with time and dozens of visits to Adventure Aquarium over the last 16 years.

Lovers of all sea creatures, especially sharks, David and Jake are excited to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for marine life and, of course, Adventure Aquarium!

Lauren Frazier

Lauren is a working mom who loves weekend adventures. She and her son (who wants to be a marine biologist when he grows up!) love to visit Adventure Aquarium to learn about animals. Most recently, they met African penguin Maisey during a Penguin Encounter, and learned about molting.

When not on a weekend adventure, she can be found at work or home enjoying family time. A Temple University alumna with a degree in Journalism, she loves writing and capturing candid photos. Tune in for fun things to do with your family at Adventure Aquarium!
