Friendswood Texas

I’m a proud Texan, a United States Navy veteran, and an enthusiastic kayak angler. My connection to the Texas Coast runs deep, as I’ve spent my entire life exploring its waters. However, my kayak fishing journey officially kicked off in 2008. Since then, I’ve been navigating the Texas marshes in pursuit of Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. Although I appreciate the diversity of species, my primary focus has always been on chasing after the elusive Redfish.

Over the years, I’ve actively participated in numerous Redfish tournaments, and I’m proud to say that I’ve secured the top spot in several of them. My dedication to this sport has led to some remarkable victories.

In addition to my passion for fishing, I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Filmmaking. I take immense pleasure in documenting all my waterborne adventures through high-quality photography and videography. It’s a way for me to relive those moments and share the beauty of the Texas Coast with others.
