I can’t tell you the first time I caught a fish at the Outer Banks but I can tell you that most of my greatest memories growing up have been centered on fishing around Hatteras Island. I have a true passion for fishing, which has led me to fish at a competitive level for most of my life. After graduating from high school, I was lucky enough to further my education and am currently finishing my Doctorate Degree at the University of South Carolina. During my time in school I have represented multiple universities in Bassmaster, Boat U.S. and FLW college bass fishing events. I currently represent the Gamecock Bass fishing team during the most fruitful time of its existence. Together, we have won back-to-back FLW national championships and already have two teams qualified to compete in the 2017 National Championship. During my experience as a competitive fisherman. I have represented a number of leading brands in the fishing industry including: Berkley, Lews Reels, ALX Rods, Costa etc.
