My hunting and fishing equipment is functional and I take that seriously. I feel an obligation to share knowledge of quality outdoor products with consumers who enjoy the outdoors in ways in which I do. As an avid outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy sharing experiences and the knowledge I have been fortunate to gain by many mentors over the years I hunt every chance I get! I began this passion on Maryland's eastern shore hunting waterfowl with my yellow Labrador retriever, Gauge.
I have made two trips to hunt plains game in Africa and have hunted in more than a dozen states, hunting black bear, hogs, elk, mule deer and antelope, with one turkey subspecies away from my Grand Slam.
I'm also a proud member of the Town of Greensboro Parks and Recreation Commission, National Rifle Association-Life Member, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation- Life Member, Ducks Unlimited-Member, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) Volunteer for foster children.
Since 2007, I have been honored to work with our wounded military heroes returning from Iraq and Afghanistan to aid in their recovery through outdoor experiences. I have worked with many organizations to support our troops and their families in outdoor recreational pursuits. Also, I'm currently employed by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and I have been the Volunteer and Citizen Advocacy Manager for the Maryland DNR, Maryland Park Service for the past 8 years.
