In His own words:
I am a really hard worker and try really hard to chase my dreams. I’ve stayed on the straight and narrow track to achieve success in the fishing industry. I believe in pushing that belief and passion and I hope that is what people see when they see me. I am happy to be a part of APEX and see it as a huge opportunity for western anglers in years to come. This will finally be something to showcase our anglers and compete for substantial sums of money in the West. I look forward to competing against guys that I respect and admire.
