Personal Interests:I caught my first fish when I was three years old and have been in love with the outdoors, especially fishing, ever since. I grew up fishing on Lake Conroe, 50 miles north of Houston, and the occasional stock pond. When I moved to San Marcos 5 years ago and quickly fell in love with the hill country and the clear spring fed rivers we have here.On the San Marcos River was where I was first introduced to kayak fishing and my addiction grew even more. I spend every spare second I have either reading about, thinking about or prepping for Kayak Fishing. On average I am on the river about 3 times a week! Can’t stop, won’t stop Kayak fishing!
Growing up fishing the fresh waters in and around the Austin area, I eventually developed a taste for saltier things. Whether it’s sight casting off the bow of a skiff, or poling around my kayak on the saltwater flats, I enjoy everything about the coast.
When I’m not fishing for reds or trouts, I enjoy playing golf, watching soccer, and having lazy days with my dog Stella.
