I am the Founder and CEO of HuntingLife.com. My passion for hunting began at the age of five hunting mule deer in the high desert of the Eastern Sierra Mountains alongside my father. It’s still one of my favorite places. Over the next 30 years, I was able to chase ducks, dove, mule deer, whitetail, elk and antelope on trips with my father from California to Virginia, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

In 2003, I began writing and blogging about the outdoors in the pages of our outfitter website. I shared tips, tricks and gear advice for prospective elk, bear and deer hunters coming to Idaho and Montana. In 2006, after the passing of my father, I sold my portion of the outfitting business and bought HuntingLife.com the next day in an effort to continue my passion for writing, storytelling and the outdoors. Our company was really built to be a tribute to my father, who spent his life hunting, shooting and working for the USFS. Hunting Life a conduit to share the message of the North American Conservation Model and help hunters from all walks of life get the knowledge they need to experience the outdoors.

In 2009, HuntingLife.com became my full-time profession, and I have been writing ever since. A lot has changed over the last 17 years, but in a lot of ways things have stayed the same: produce great content that educates and informs your readers and be authentic to your audience.

I joined POMA soon after becoming a full-time writer knowing full well that the best way to become a better writer was to surround myself with better writers. Jim Zumbo had told me about the value of POMA, and I jumped at the chance to join the organization. While the industry has changed year after year, the value of organizations like POMA continue to drive connections and education for our members regardless of how our members create content. I have served on the board of directors for POMA during the COVID shutdown, I had the opportunity to spearhead the online auction to raise funds for the organization at a critical time.
