Welcome to my world on the water.

bioStage_650x650.jpg

I am a lifelong outdoor enthusiast and wife proclaimed fishaholic. I am an aspiring professional angler and actively involved in several grass roots angling and conservation organizations. I am a retired Army officer living in Leavenworth, Ks currently working for the United States Army. I am an active member of the Leavenworth Bass Club (the largest BASS affiliated bass club in the Midwest). I fish multiple tournament circuits to include the FLW Costa Series Central Division, BFL Ozark Division, The Bass Federation events in Kansas, BASS Nation events in both Kansas and Missouri. I routinely fish Grand Lake of the Cherokees, Truman, Lake of the Ozarks, Table Rock, Pomme de Terre, and Stockton Lakes. On average, I spend over 140 days on the water each year. I plan on continuing to develop my angling skills. With tournament fishing as my passion, I am keenly aware of the business aspects of the sport holding an undergraduate BBA in marketing and a Masters in Business Administration. I love to talk fishing whether conducting, seminars, working for sponsors, or writing articles and blogs; I get a lot of enjoyment sharing my knowledge and communicating my fishing philosophy. I routinely provide fishing and bass tournament reports from Kansas and Missouri, and Northern Oklahoma region along with informative expert articles on a myriad of fishing and conservation issues.

Notable achievements

With the help of a myriad of sponsors and volunteers, I was able to bring the Fishing for Freedom to the Midwest. Since 2009, Fishing for Freedom LLC has organized volunteer boaters to take wounded warriors and Global War on terrorism (GWOT) veterans out for a day of tournament bass fishing. For complete details go to http://fishingforfreedom.us/.

In the last 10 years, I have been fortunate to be on the advisory council of the largest and most active Rod and Gun Club within the Department of Defense with over 400 members annually. As the Ft Leavenworth Rod and Gun Club fishing coordinator, I plan, organize, and execute multiple angling and conservation events to include two Kid’s Fishing events annually that bring together 150-200 kids age 0-15 for a day of fishing and outdoor recreation.

Active member of the BASS Nation in both Kansas and Missouri since 2007 years. Also an active member of The Bass Federation in Kansas since 2009.
