I am always proud of my hiking accomplishment of becoming an Adirondack 46er. I spent many hours and a lot of energy hiking those high peaks with my father. I am ADK46er #5066
I received both my Bachelors & Masters of Science in Education from the State University of NY at Potsdam. I am currently employed with Morristown Central School as an Elementary teacher.
I started fishing at a very young age with my grandmother who use to take me on trips all the time. We would drive to various places to fish from the shore and I fell in love with the sport. I fished my first tournament when I was 16 years old as a non-boater. It was a Military Bass tournament on Black Lake, NY. Since then I have fished in many tournament trails which include but are not limited to the N.Y. State B.A.S.S. Federation, ABA Weekend Series, Northern NY Bassmasters Team Trail, Northern NY Bassmasters II Federation Club, Avon Anglers, FLW-BFL & the Northeast Bassmaster Series, and FLW Costa Series.
I fished my first tournament 19 years ago and since then fell in love with the sport. I have been lucky enough to win many tournaments across several different venues which includes 2 angler of the year seasons with the NNYB II Federated Club, 3 Team of The Year seasons and more.
