Warrior Cat Rods Pro Staff
I grew up fishing Lake Sakakawea and the Little Missouri River in Western North Dakota and every body of water I could get a pole into. I have fished a lot of lakes in Minnesota and eastern Montana. I spend all my spare time on the Yellowstone River where I have won many tournaments. I've won one state championship and Angler of the Year award in both of the Montana channel catfish tournament circuits and currently the best in MT.
I have loved to fish since I was very young, and many of my best memories from when I was young involve fishing. By the time I was in my early teens I was obsessed with fishing, and catfishing specifically. Targeting catfish has been an obsession since I was young, but in 2017, I was introduced to tournaments, where, because of my competitiveness, I truly started to grow as an angler. I am very fortunate to be able to fish most tournaments with my wife and son.

My dad introduced my brother and I to fishing when we were very young and I have been "hooked" ever since. Living in California, I am able to fish year-round and enjoy fishing for a variety of species including fresh and salt water fish. I am always trying to learn new techniques and find new places. My primary focus is targeting Catfish. Over the past several years I have enjoyed tournament fishing all across the state, most recently finishing second in the California Stat Championship held at Lake Berryessa in June 2022. When I am not fishing I love hanging out with friends and family.
