Growing up in a medium-sized town in central New York, I have spent many days fishing a local stream. In the summer I spent most of my time fishing on small lakes with my brother, and of course making friendly bets. That might be where I learned about my competitive edge.
After High-school, I went on to join the Army and served until 1995, leaving to assist with my ailing mother. Since her passing, I began my journey to hopefully one day become a professional bass fisherman.
In 1999 I began tournament fishing as a member of the Barge Canal Bassmasters. Since then I’ve continued the pursuit of becoming a professional bass fisherman. While my career path has led me down many roads, the thought of being a professional fisherman had never left my mind.
In 2012, I started fishing the New York State Bass Federation. In my inaugural season, I finished the year with 3 top 15 places and Co-angler of the year honors. Along with that, I have amassed several top 10 finishes in both club and open tournaments.
In 2016, I married Constance Breese. Constance knew of my passion for fishing and has encouraged me every since to get back at it. The following year Constance and I had a true blessing come upon us with our daughter Xandra.
In my spare time, I enjoy building custom fishing rods, woodworking, volunteering, traveling, movies, and teaching people about fishing.
