I was born and raised on the Olympic Peninsula.

I’ve had a fishing rod in my hand since I was 5 years old and at the age of 10.

I started sitting in the front of drift boats riding down the Sol Duc River on the Olympic Peninsula. Ever since my first drift boat ride in 1997 fishing the OP rivers has been a way of life so it was only logical I transitioned into guiding when the moment was right. I am a 29 year old that is always looking for the competitive edge and never complacent with already almost 20 years of knowledge, combine that with a laid back easy going demeanor that understands it’s all about having fun and you know you’re in for a good time.

I fish most everything on the OP but specialize in the Forks based rivers and a couple of the southern gems we have here in Washington State.
