Born and raised on the Rogue River in Shady Cove, Oregon, I grew up fishing for salmon and steelhead. I was fortunate enough to have a great year-round fishing hole in my backyard! After catching my first steelhead at the age of five and later learning about the world of guiding, I knew that guiding is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I became a licensed guide/outfitter at the age of fifteen. After high school, I followed my dreams to guide full-time and explore the world of fishing. Over the years, I’ve fished for a variety of species in several exotic and unique places.
I now have over 20 years of guide experience. Currently, I guide on the Umpqua, Rogue, and many other rivers in Southern Oregon and Northern California. I pride myself on providing customers a unique and unforgettable fishing experience. My clientele ranges from beginners just learning to fish to much more experienced anglers. For any level of fisherman, I believe I am an excellent teacher and always have something new to offer.
