Did you ever think you were going to be a television host when you were a kid?
Yes it has been a solid goal since I was about 15. I spent the last 9 years building up a fishing and promotions name for myself on the Bassmaster Opens, Top 150 and Elite series events. Also in 2000 my father and I started Blue Water Promotions a demonstration tank business giving over 750 seminars per year nationwide. This helped polish our speaking ability!

Highest point of career as an angler or TV fishing host: Just setting out to complete a life long goal. I have competed at the highest level of the sport and TV allows me and my family to slow down a little from the 9 months on the road! I love the opportunity to teach the sport of angling. Also with our 2nd Chance Outdoors segment of the show I enjoy helping others who have been or are going through Cancer treatment. I’m a proud survivor.
