I was born and raised in northeast Wisconsin, where I grew up learning the local waters, specifically the Bay of Green Bay and Lake Winnebago. At an early age I started competing in local tournaments for walleye and bass. I ended up qualifying through the Bassmaster Opens to fish at the highest level: The Bassmaster Elite series. In that series I fished against the best in the business.
I currently reside just outside of Philadelphia, PA and still fish regional tournaments and local events. I spend plenty of time on the Chesapeake Bay, and often find myself traveling to Upstate New York to fish a few specific techniques and styles that I really enjoy.
