For as long as I can remember, I have held a rod in my hand, hoping to feel that familiar twitch that tells me “FISH ON!”  My passion for fishing began in freshwater ponds and streams in the Midwest as a small child.  From bass, crappie, blue gill and perch fishing in Indiana, to salmon fishing in Michigan, to walleye fishing in Minnesota, I seemed to go where the fish were known to bite... eventually leading me to the lakes and rivers of Colorado, Nevada, and California.  Fishing has long been a passion of mine.


I was introduced to offshore salt water fishing at a very young age while visiting my grandparents down here in Southwest Florida.  My grandparents are avid fisherpeople... I know I get my passion honestly.  For the past 16 years, I have tried my hand at in-shore salt water fishing, and I have to tell you... I am addicted!  It’s like fresh water fishing, only better!


Sixteen years ago I was introduced to kayaking.  It took one time out and I was hooked!  My passion for exploring the estuaries and waterways began.  Witnessing nature up close and personal was simply amazing.  Bringing my two passions together was only a matter of time.


I have been a kayak fishing and eco-tour guide for eleven years now. Having the ability to share my passion with so many others is why I love doing what I do.  I am fortunate to have the opportunities I do, and I only hope to be able to share them all with you!
