Member since December 2019
Born and raised here in New Smyrna Beach, I grew up fishing the local waters with my dad and older brother. When I wasn't working at my family's beachside restaurant, I'd spend all my free time on the water with friends and learned how to target and catch each species of fish that are native to this area. After years of fishing for fun, I started mating on a private fishing charter boat learning the ins and outs on how to troll offshore. Shortly after, I purchased my dream boat, the Poseidon, and decided to turn my passion and love for fishing into a career – something I've dreamed of doing my entire life. In August 2019, I obtained my captain's license from the School of Adams Marines Seminars.
