I started my fly fishing journey in Central Oregon seven years ago and it was clear to me from day one, this is a very special area.  The fishing diversity is among the best in the world and I have developed a deep connection with the local lakes and rivers … the combination of beautiful scenery, solitude, and plentiful trout is true zen for me.
I grew up in an avid fishing family in the Midwest and have strong memories of road trips with my family to fish for a broad range of species.  Through these early fishing expeditions, I developed a true passion for the art/science of the sport and started a lifelong quest to stay connected with nature through fly fishing.
Prior to my life in Bend, I worked in corporate finance and traveled globally with many opportunities to fly fish.  My travels took me to many of the well-known waters in the U.S, as well as Belize, Mexico, the Caribbean, and South America…where I reveled in the opportunities for challenging fish.
 
I truly enjoy helping others build their knowledge/skills and take their game to a higher level.   It is a privilege to guide for Fly and Field Outfitters.  We have a great team and the focus is always on helping people enjoy our special sport.  I invite you to join me for a fun and fishy day on the water!
