My Story

Raised outdoors in Montana, I have an unquenchable passion for all things hunting (and angling) and helping others discover their own experiences.  My pursuits span the spectrum from upland to big game, archery to muzzleloading.  After enlisting in the U.S. Navy and deploying with the U.S. Marine Corps, I completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees.  When not in the mountains, you'll find me involved in state wildlife conservation with Montana FWP as a council member working on education, access, and landowner-sportsman dynamics.  I  enjoy waterfowling with my Chesapeake Bay Retriever, Cane, and flying a peregrine falcon, Freyja.  For the past several years I have helped create and teach hunter education programs as well as frequently being a guest on podcasts, workshops, and events with a focus on hunting ethics.

I host Elevate the Hunt hosts featuring two podcasts and a blog exploring hunting's culture and ethics.
