I was born and raised in Jackson Hole, where I spent much of my early years exploring the backcountry of Wyoming. I attended the University of Wyoming and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology and Management, and a Master’s Degree in Zoology and Physiology. I started my career as a Biologist with the US Geological Survey and later as a Fisheries Biologist with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.
For the past 15 years I have worked in the Jackson and Pinedale Regions where I have worked on the Green, Snake, Salt, Hoback and Greys rivers and many of their tributaries. Much or my work today focuses on the managment of sport fisheries and the conservation of native species in the Upper Green River drainage. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three boys in any an all manners of outdoor recreation.
