🎙️ Guest Bio: Jeff Heim - The Shark Tooth Hunter with a Bite of His Own

Hey there, listeners! Meet Jeff Heim, the fearless adventurer you might recognize from a viral sensation—the guy who survived an alligator bite to the head while diving for shark teeth back in May 2021. But hold up, there's more to Jeff than that jaw-dropping encounter! 🐊

Before he even had his close-up with Mr. Alligator, Jeff was already living the dream as a shark tooth hunter, turning his passion for fossilized chompers into a real gig. Jeff's mission is to pivot that gnarly experience into something profoundly positive through his venture, SHRKco. 🦈

With 2021 being a record year for animal extinctions (yikes 😢), SHRKco aims to do its part in turning the tide. The plan? Use the incredibly preserved teeth of ancient sharks as a springboard to advocate for a more harmonious relationship with Mother Nature. 🌎

Jeff is all about transforming his pain into purpose, striving to make the world a better place—one shark tooth and one life lesson at a time. So, lend him your ears as he joins Jay Hicks to share his incredible story of tragedy, triumph, and teeth! 🌟
