BIOGRAPHYI started fishing at a very young age off of local docks and was instantly "hooked". I have always lived in an area of Michigan that is saturated with inland lakes, so fishing and boating was a very constant thing in my life. In 2011, I purchased my first boat. Nothing too fancy or special, but it got me on the water, so I was happy. I met my wife in 2011 and found an instant fishing partner. My now wife, Erica, has fished with me almost daily since we first met. I even proposed to her on our bass boat by floating bobbers in the water ahead of time with a sign attached saying "will you marry m...e, you are the perfect catch". I hooked a keeper that day. After a few years of competitive bass fishing, I sold the boat and went all in for the sport of kayak fishing. I wanted to be closer to the water, be able to transport easier and enjoy the purity of bass fishing on waters not accessible to boaters. Then I fell in love for the second time in my life. I joined the FeelFree fishing team in 2016 and have since competed in multiple tournaments and events as well as demo days, teaching seminars and family instructional events. I have finished top ten in a majority of the tournaments that I have entered, including a 1st place finish, 2nd place finish and a 4th place finish of 72 anglers in my first season. Competing in the KATS, KBF and other events has kept me very busy and on the water a majority of my days. I am currently on the FeelFree fishing, Summit Sports fishing team and sponsored or an ambassador for: Burn Custom baits, Yakgear, Railblaza, and a national pro angler for FX custom rods. I only represent brands that I am passionate about and that carry the same integrity and love for the sport that I hold very close.
I am currently an executive board member for Heroes on the Water-SE MI and founder/president of Kayak Anglers of the Midwest (KAM) that hosts and organizes unique events to welcome new anglers into the sport. As of 2017, I also have Bassquatch Clothing Co. up and running and write/film/edit Bassquatch Hunter TV. I travel the country full time as a pro angler and film/editing for Bassquatch Hunter TV.
I am looking forward to grow as an angler and kayaker over the next couple seasons and build awareness for the sport of kayak fishing. Tight lines and bent rods to all.
