Since childhood my roots have been anchored outdoors. Camping, fishing, and hunting with my family was and integral part of growing up and secured my connection to wild places and the experiences they offer. My passion for bowhunting has fueled adventures spanning the United States, Canada, and South Africa.
In early 1993 I began working for legendary game calling pioneer and National Bowhunter Hall of Fame inductee, Larry D. Jones at Wilderness Sound Productions. I worked on new game call product development, production, and filming for a variety of projects. Larry taught me how to shoot high-quality video in the field and I was able to put these skills to use on promotional videos, DART Target System footage, Techno-Hunt footage, and a few notable hunting video titles.
Later, to further my technical archery & bowhunting knowledge, I moved to Colorado and partnered with Bowhunter Magazine's Technical Editor, Dave Holt. We conducted bowhunting classes (Colorado School of Bowhunting) and spent 150+ days afield each year bowhunting and field testing products. I was responsible for promotional video footage, video target footage, press releases, building a technical workshop, sales and promotion of various archery products and videos throughout our bowhunting adventures.
Over the years I have harvested Columbian Blacktail Deer, Roosevelt Elk, Rocky Mountain Elk, Black Bear, Pronghorn Antelope, Whitetail Deer, Caribou, African game, Coyote, Turkey, and a variety of small game. I have been involved with numerous wildlife, habitat, conservation, and NBEF bowhunter education volunteer activities in order to give back to the wild resources I cherish so much. I have been blessed with some incredible mentors as well, so in turn I'm driven to share my experiences to help others find success in the field.Professionally, I have worked in Product Design & Development for 17 years, specializing in Industrial Design and Design Management. I'm an official measurer for the Pope and Young Club, NMLRA, NW Big Game, and Oregon Shed Hunters.
