Professional Angler and Promoter


2012 was my first season tournament fishing. My very first tournament I wasn’t sure what to expect but to my surprise, I won and from that moment I have been hooked on the competition side of the industry. When not tournament fishing or pre fishing I am traveling across the US targeting different species of fish. One day I hope to say “if it swims, I caught it”. Not only am I passionate about fishing but hunting as well.

Favorite Fishing Areas

California Delta, Clear Lake (CA), Sakakawea (ND), Missouri River (ND), Lake of the Woods (MN), Winnibigoshish (MN), Bass Lake (MN), Mille Lacs (MN), Pokegama (MN), Splithand Lake (MN), Leech lake (MN), Texoma (TX), and many more.

My life growing up was never about hunting or fishing. I never dreamed I would want to try either but I am very thankful I did. It changed my life forever. I learned to appreciate Mother Nature and all she had to offer. I have learned a lot about myself and how much I needed to change my life. I learned patience, trust and determination. I also learned to smile again. I can’t wait to see where this new path in life takes me. “I wasn’t born into the outdoors, I was born to be in the outdoors”.

It is a great honor to be a part of Pink Fishing, not only do I get to fish for a cure but I get to belong to a real fishing family. Pink Fishing and its family is held close to my heart. I have family and friends who battle from some form of cancer each and every day and to be able to represent all of them through my fishing is my greatest achievement. The Pink Fishing Family Rocks!!!
