I started fly fishing when I was a kid in Denver, Colorado. It has always been my passion and once I was able to drive it allowed me to fish whenever and wherever I wanted. That path led me to move to Gunnison to attend college where I quickly realized I wanted to work within the fishing industry. Since then I have guided for 8 years, worked in 3 fly shops for 10 years, been lucky enough to be a member of Scott's Pro Staff, been certified as a Casting Instructor through Fly Fishers International, met a plethora of incredible, and inspiring anglers, and helped countless people enjoy the sport that has impacted my life so much. Over my travels I have fished many fisheries both freshwater and saltwater as well as being very well versed in spey casting and tying. Living in Seattle and fishing the renown rivers of the P.N.W. with spey rods for steelhead has been an exceptional chapter in my life, but I have always wanted to move back to Western Colorado. Through all this I have built a career out of educating, instructing, and selling the sport and ushering in a new era of anglers. I fish only Scott Rods, use only Ross and Abel reels and am a die hard Coloradan. I believe if people want to fish for the worlds best fish they should use the worlds best gear, for that I find myself exceptionally lucky to be part of Scott's legacy and use your rods. I would love nothing more than to find the next chapter of my life be supporting and helping grow the company that has inspired me so much.
