In 2007 I met a group of folks who turned me on to kayak fishing and kayak tournaments fishing saltwater bass! Bay bass, calicos and sand bass.
I began my journey on the tournament trail. With hard work, in 2009, I became the Plastic Navy Kayak Angler of the Year and signed with Hobie in 2008 and it was a game changer for me! Over the years I have been on radio shows wrote for magazines and podcasts. I’m a licensed guide and a seminar speaker.
Thanks to my strong communication skills, love of the sport, and passion for conservation, I’m blessed to be sponsored by companies like Bass Pro shop, Berkley, Penn, Abu Garcia, Ram Trucks, Promar ahi USA,Lead masters, Pure water sports. I have also been a top ten tournament angler in both boating and kayak series such as SWBA and the Saltwater Bass Series. I have competed against the best in Southern California.
