Background
I spent my first day on the water at 3 days old on my dad's Comercial fishing boat. Growing up helping him and going to school I got my own boat when I was 10. I used to work around a fish camp and when I turned 12 a got asked to take my first charter out for money, we did great and I was hooked. When I was 14 I started working for a lodge guiding. 16 I started fishing on the west coast and haida gwaii. 9 years ago I bought my first charter boat and started island pursuit sport fishing.
