About me

I can be funny if I want to be.

The Best Part of My Job

I enjoy everything about this job. What’s there not to like? Meeting new people, sharing Idaho’s beautiful, one-of-a-kind wildernesses, working with my pards, it’s all a very special part of being a guide.

How I found OARS

I placed myself around amazing human beings and good things happened.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

Whatever river you’re on, at that moment, it’s going to be pretty cool. Of course, having a big cutty tugging on the end of your fly line ain’t bad either.

My Favorite Trip Memory

Way too many to list in this tiny space.

Favorite River Tradition

Superstitions and traditions only lead to heavier rig bags.

I Can’t Live Without

My amazing wife and kids
