I am a horseman in Lexington, KY, a legacy of three generations of love for horses, farms, and the out of doors. My earliest memories include wading creeks of the Midwest, discovering all manner of critters, catching many, and learning to handle fishing rods of all kinds, as well as handling guns for ducks, pheasants, and grouse. Inspired and encouraged by father, mother, grandfathers, and an uncle, I sought mountain tops, wild waters, and faraway places. Climbing from the Tetons to the Himalayas and having adventures through Africa, I have been blessed with health and the joy of discovery. I am committed to preserve and conserve whether through educating, numerous conservancies for whom I work, and farm and habitat preservation; so that those that come after have an opportunity to Give’r as I have done.
