Originally I am from Ortonville, MN and I moved to the Chamberlain area in 1996. I grew up on a farm east of Ortonville and thanks to my father who was an avid outdoorsman, I began hunting and fishing at a very young age. Because of this, hunting and fishing are more than a hobby for me; it is an obsession.  That obsession has allowed me to gain vast knowledge and experience on how to fish for all species of fresh water fish, hunt upland game birds, deer, turkey, and water fowl.

Ime moved to Chamberlain to begin a teaching career, but I also chose the Chamberlain area for the vast opportunities for hunting and fishing. In 1998 I received the opportunity to fulfill a lifetime dream of becoming a fishing and hunting guide to supplement my teaching salary. I eventually decided to become a full-time guide and substitute teacher to supplement my guiding income.
