Covering: Kansas, Missouri
I was born and raised in Gladstone Missouri, which is located in the very north part of Kansas City. I graduated from Oak Park High School in 1998, and then was accepted into Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, but decided to attend Maple Woods College in Kansas City. I was a pro bass fisherman for several years. I fished the FLW Series the first couple years while going pro, as well as regional pro tournaments like the Heartland Pro Am and BFL to name a few.
I have always been very involved in the outdoors. The first hunting I had ever done was bow hunting back when I was 14 years old, and to this day bow hunting hasn’t ever stopped being an attraction for me. I love all types of hunting: duck, quail, deer and turkey; and really enjoy shooting 3D tournaments. Prior to working for Gartland and Associates, I worked for a local store selling and working on archery equipment for 5 years.
