I am a seasoned tournament angler starting with boat tournaments and moving over to Kayaks in 2014 when I purchased my first Hobie's from Mariner Sails. I have worked with Aris Tsamis at Mariner since then, joining his Ambassador staff and the Hobie Fishing Team since 2017. I work multiple events for Mariner's every year, including demo days and conventions. I have even met multiple prospective customers at a lake so they could demo my team boat. I am co-director of the NTXKC, which is the largest kayak tournament trail in the North Texas region, and I volunteer at other tournaments throughout the year. I am a family man with a young daughter, so I tend to stay close to home for now, but I do plan on travelling to at least 1 national event per year starting next year.
