Most proud of: My 5 children and my loving wife
I was born in Anchorage, Alaska into a family with a deep hunting heritage. I was raised in Phoenix, Arizona where I grew up hunting each season with my family and friends. I am now a resident of Cedar City, Utah with my wife and 5 children. I got the “sheep fever” at a young age and have spent each fall season guiding Dall sheep hunts and helping others on as many sheep hunts as possible. I enjoy pursuing different species and hunting new locations each season. I hope to someday collect the Super 10 and the Grand Slam awards, simply because it means I will have experienced different species in different locations!

Hunting to me is more than just a hobby or a sport, it’s part of who I am. I attribute my positive family relationships to days and weeks spent in the mountains together. I know that if we work together as a hunting community, we can achieve our goals, raise successful children, and fill plenty of tags in the years to come!
