Growing up, if I knew you were able to make a living playing on rivers and oceans, I never would’ve told my 5th grade teacher I wanted to be a weather man! I spent my younger years on the rivers of the Midwest, battling Great Lake Steelhead with a fly rod starting at the age of 10. I honed my angling skills in the heart of the Rockies where I graduated from Colorado State University. Since 2005, I have worked as a fly fishing guide on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River in Idaho. In addition to chasing trout around the mountain west I guide anglers on the Indian River Lagoon and beaches off the coast of Vero Beach, FL. My wife Cheryl and daughter Elsa have allowed me to chase my passion, given’r each and every day.

Give' live inspired. Everything this company stands for just makes sense to me. Yes, I could have done what the masses do and get a "real job" in corporate America. That approach, however, didn't inspire me. What inspires me is doing what I love to do, striving to be the best I can, and choosing to Give'r every day! Whether I am on the river or "in the big pond", I'm going to continue to live inspired and just friggen Give'r.
