Grew up in northern California a city called Pacifica. Started with fishing and surfing in the ocean and camping, hiking in mountains of northern California. Started working at a fishing lodge in southeast Alaska then became a commercial fishermen for salmon and crabbing . I used my off seasons to hunt and travel. I got my start of waterfowl hunting from my brother little over ten years ago in San Francisco Bay for pintails and canvasbacks .then started hunting the refuges in the sacremento valley and hunting geese in the mountains of North eastern California. I was hooked after my first day. I try to share my passion for waterfowl hunting with my nephews and niece's as much as I can.I also make and sell my own lanyards and duck straps to keep me busy in the off season .
