After watching my first episode of Meteorite Men, I was hooked. I never knew a person could own a "rock from space." So, when the opportunity came up in October 2011, I bought my first meteorites from Geoff Notkin - two high quality Sikhote Alins which I still own and enjoy today.
Since then, collecting meteorites and most other meteorite-related items has turned into a passion (a nice way of saying "obsession"). My focus has always been on buying the highest quality specimens that I could afford. Their incredible diversity and beauty has allowed me to merge my interests in art, science, history and even theology in a way that no other "collectible" item can approach. Best of all, I have had the pleasure of meeting amazing people around the world who have made collecting meteorites all the more special.
In October 2014, I was elected to the IMCA Board of Directors and am very proud to serve our community in this fashion. Then, in September 2015, I decided to take my passion for meteorites and tektites one step further and became a full time dealer specializing in rare and unusual specimens. I also am the creator and admin for two very popular Facebook pages and encourage all interested to join meteorites.tektites.impactites and/or meteorite.or.meteorwrong.
I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by Meteorite Times Magazine as part of their Meteorite People feature. The entire interview can be found at www.meteorite-times.com/meteorite-people/mendy-ouzillou/ and provides far more background than I can in this medium.
