I've basically been fishing my entire life. I started out as a fresh water fisherman fishing rivers and lakes and then when I moved to Florida I began fishing the saltwater flats, reefs and wrecks. After a successful career in the business world I began exploring the idea of becoming a charter captain / guide and started the process of obtaining my US Coast Guard license to pursue my true passion for fishing. I've been a licensed captain for the past 10 years and I am a full time guide in the lower Florida Keys where I reside. In addition to my USCG license, I am a guide member of the Lower Keys Guides Association - a guide member of the Florida Coastal Conservation Association and an accredited captain of the International Game Fish Association. I am also fully insured to operate as a for hire charter/guide service. I also believe in giving back to our community so I do donate trips to the Wounder Warrior Foundation in order for our military personnel to relax at no charge to them.
