I am from Pikeville, KY and have been chasing bass for over 30 years from the Great Lakes to Florida to Texas and everywhere in between! I live in central KY and married to my wife Casey with our 2 dogs Hobie and Winnie! When I'm not fishing on the Hobie Bass Open Series I work by day as coal geologist for the State of Kentucky. I have been kayak fishing out of a Hobie for the last 10 years with 3 Angler of the Year titles, a Hobie Bass Open Champion and 2 time Hobie World's Qualifier. I love all things kayak fishing, creating digital content and being involved in the grass roots level of kayak fishing!
