If there is one word to describe me, it is "blessed." I am 34 years old and happily married with a beautiful 2 year old daughter. Plus, I get to live and play in one of the most beautiful places on earth, "The Crystal Coast" of North Carolina.
The fishing gene is in my blood, and the love for the sport was planted inside me at an early age. I was born in the great state of Georgia, and I grew up watching my late father guide bass trips on Lake Lanier and Lake Altoona. While he was an avid tournament largemouth and striped bass fisherman, I did not entertain the angling gene immediately. My family relocated to the gulf coast of Florida before I could start grade school, and this is where my first love was found: music. More specifically, playing guitar and writing music. Since then, it has had a great effect on my life. I have taught guitar lessons for 12 years, and I have toured different parts of the country with several different bands. Needless to say, I was playing rock clubs long before I was casting topwaters. But things would soon change.
In the late 90's, my family relocated to Bridgeton, North Carolina. It is a small town on the Neuse River, the second largest estuary in the country. This massive waterway is a wind-driven brackish ecosystem, known for producing some of the largest redfish on the planet. Over the next few years, these waters would become my playground. As fate would have it, one day I decided to buy a cheap spinning combo so I could take a shot at the local golf pond. After a dozen chunky bass on a buzzbait, I was pretty much in love all over again. All of I sudden I realized why my dad did it for a living. After that summer day, the gear got more expensive and the trips got more exciting. I then purchased a kayak and became completely embedded in inshore saltwater fishing. Through much trial and error, I spent several years learning the local waters, especially the extensive backwaters and creeks off the Neuse River. I like the variety the river offers. I can target anything from hickory shad to tarpon, and I can chase them all in my Ocean Kayak Trident 13. Speckled trout, "old" drum, striped bass, and crappie are some of my favorite target species. I have also been lucky enough to link up with some of the best anglers and guides in the area. I am a founding member of "Dem Neuse River Boys", a collective group of captains and independent anglers who are recognized throughout the region for being helpful, resourceful, and knowledgeable. With that being said, I have not accomplished much in the eyes of most competitive anglers. My goal is simple: To help others experience the same therapy that kayak fishing gives me. While I do not mind tournament fishing, this is more important to me than trophies or rankings. I routinely take novice anglers on trips, and those who do not have the means to do it themselves. I have also guided several wounded veterans and handicapped individuals who wanted to experience what it was like to have their very own adventure on the water. Now I will get to share these adventures with the world. I am very excited to be part of such an elite team of anglers, and I am proud to represent the finest company in the business. See you on the water!
