Born and raised in Roseburg, Oregon. I grew up fishing the Umpqua river system. After high school I left Oregon for the Marines. Four years and two deployments later I made my way back to Oregon and continued the pursuit of anadromous fish year round. A few years later I decided to get my guide license and started to take people fishing as a full time job, splitting my work between Oregon and Alaska. I truly believe I have one of the best jobs there is. There’s not much that can beat spending time on the water chasing fish with good people.
