Growing up, I always had a passion for fishing. Being born and raised in Central Florida, I was always surrounded by some of the best fresh and saltwater fishing that the world had to offer. At the age of 16, I started working for an elite Alaskan charter outfit, Saltwater Safari Company. Starting as a deckhand on their vessels over a decade ago, I spent several years on deck followed by several years operating there vessels, the Legend & Legacy. Eventually I purchased my own boat 5 years ago and started my own charter outfit, Anchor Down Sportfishing LLC. At the age of 22, I obtained my Merchant Mariners Credentials as Master of vessels up to 100 gross tons. When the summer season in Alaska comes to an end, I spend my winters back down in Florida where I guide tours in the Everglades. Fishing is my passion and I Would love to take you into my world and show you the beauty of Resurrection Bay and the Gulf of Alaska! FISH ON!
