Background
Born and raised in the Florida Keys, I learned to fish at an early age. Fishing and diving became my second nature. First, I started working as a commercial fisherman and then added being a professional guide to my resume. I'm a third generation captain and professional guide. I've proved my skill in various tournaments.
