As a child growing up in a hunting family I was fortunate to learn my trade at a young age. My father who was very active in hunting never passed on a chance to take me his oldest son into the wild to understand and respect the woodlands of my home state. He was a brilliant mentor and a pioneer to archery hunting in the 1980s. I spent many evenings in meetings while he was treasurer of the SCI Detroit chapter and as a founding member of the Southeast Michigan Bow Hunters chapter. I also spent many weekends at various shows across the US while he promoted hunting and his TV show. So it’s safe to say that I was born into hunting and also into the hunting industry. My father’s legacy inspired me to aspire to an even greater contribution to this industry.
As a young adult hunting was a big part of my life and I also excelled in other sports. I played hockey to the Division 1 level in college and also was very dedicated to golf. Now I'm dedicating my life to helping others plan their dream hunt.
