Born in Red Deer, Alberta…Dad had me fishing as soon as I was old enough to sit up…Started fly fishing in '82 in Swan Hills catching Arctic Grayling and Rainbows.

Bought my first kayak in 2010. Entered my first kayak fishing tournament in 2012 (Eastslope Kayak Fishing Classic). I won the Eastslope Kayak Fishing Classic in 2018 and won the Cold Lake Classic in 2022.

I bought my first Hobie in December of 2012, a Pro Angler 12 and I now run an Outback.

Some of my favorite fish to catch are large Rainbows and Tigers in Beaver Lake, Lake Whitefish in Sylvan Lake and Lake Trout in Cold Lake.
