Tell us about yourself:
I grew up in a small town in Eastern NC and was introduced to hunting by my dad. While growing up, hunting and fishing was always a big part of my life as a kid. Thanks to my dad for instilling in me a passion for hunting and fishing at an early stage in life, it has always remained a big part of me. I currently reside in Windsor NC with my wife Jessica and beautiful daughter Emerson. She’s already showing interest in fishing and just being outdoors and likes to play around with the duck calls… that makes for one proud dad. Hopefully, I will be able to introduce her to the outdoors as my dad did with me.
The counties here lie along the Roanoke and Chowan Rivers and provide some of the best hunting for all types of game in the state. Although I enjoy all types of hunting, my passion is chasing waterfowl in the swamp bottoms and flooded timber. There is nothing better than a cool morning sunrise and the sound of whistling wings overhead.
Over the past 15+ years, I have had the opportunity to work in the hunting field with a couple of different outfitters in Eastern NC, managing the day to day operations and promoting services at outdoor events along the East Coast. The people I have met and friends made along the way have been second to none. I have been fortunate in meeting the likes of Brad Allen and becoming a Pro-staffer/rep for Elite Duck Calls. Now, my time is spent hunting with friends and family… making memories along the way.
Within the past couple of years, I have recently obtained my Broker license and have become a partner in a new company, Carolina Land Pursuits, where we specialize in hunting and recreational properties. This definitely keeps me in the outdoors assisting clients in pursuit of their very own Hunting paradise.
