Location: Unknown. Hawaii to the East Coast has been called home for the past 18 years, last seen deep in the Rocky Mountains.
Occupation: Professional adventure seeker…err…bum who, like the rest of the world, grew up with a rod in hand a deep love for water. In the early 90s summers as a teenager were spent doing salmon habitat research in the Bitteroot as a data recorder. Soon after, the lure of adventure quickly landed a commercial fisherman gig. This started a chain reaction and the quest for the largest game fish with a rod and reel started, and lasted, for many years. Winter usually consists of trudging through waist deep snow while working with friends in the snow industry. Nowadays, perusing native fish in remote locations is the driving force of the journey.
Interests: Chasing water and experiencing the element in its raw state — frozen or flowing, still or wrath. Water Rights: founder of the Utah Water Guardians, a grassroots movement of ordinary anglers who fought on the frontline on Capitol Hill…and won.
Words to Live By: Know no Limits. Remain faceless, it’s not about the person, it’s about the fish. Stay humble, everyone is somebody.
Gibberish: Life is too short not to live it. Money and office jobs were traded for the road less traveled. Just like everyone else, 45 – 50 hours in 3 days are pounded out at work, the rest of the 75 hours are on the water. I tote my camera and pen on my back to document life from my perspective.
