I was introduced to fishing by my father at the age of 4 on Hat Creek in Northern California. Some 52 years later, I still find the same joy and excitement from every fish I catch. My passion for the last 14 years has been kayak fishing, competing in numerous tournaments and being named a Hobie Top Gun in 2017. I placed in the top 10 in 4 out of 5 tournaments in 2022, including a 9th place finish in the CABNK California Championship. As a Hobie dealer, I love getting my customers on the water in the best kayaks made. As an avid angler, I find the greatest joy in not only my own catches but inviting others to share in the excitement by passing on my knowledge.
