Who Am I
Living in Benton Louisiana, just north of the Shreveport/Bossier area, home to the Red River.  I was born September 29, 1968 and have been married for 20 years to my lovely wife Laurie, who is just as passionate as I am about bass fishing. We have 3 daughters that we have enjoyed raising, however they have ventured out on their own in life.  I am fortunate and fish 4-5 days a week 12 months a year and will fish 30-35 tournaments a year.  My hobbies include efforts to preserve our great sport and itís environment.  I am a member of the Twin Cities Team Club, American Bass Anglers, B.A.S.S., Media Bass and Bass Life Associates of NW Louisiana. Bass fishing has been a way of life for me since I was old enough to hold a fishing rod.  My father was a very accomplished bass fisherman and I was fortunate to follow in his footsteps and learn from him.  By the time I was old enough to drive I was fishing at circuit level.  After a break in fishing, due to my military career, and with the help of my wife we started Ultimate Bass, a team tournament trail.  Managing 2 divisions that fished once a month.  Ultimate Bass eventually grew into an international bass fishing website. 

Employment:

Ultimate Bass received 18 million page views in 2010.  Ultimate Bass is an international bass fishing site dedicated to the everyday angler.  With over 16,000 members and nearly 1 million posts the Ultimate Bass Forum has become very prominent in the internet bass fishing industry.  I currently have 31,000 posts on the forum and am considered an expert in many fishing techniques offering advice to beginners and tournament anglers alike.

I am on the Legend Boats National Pro Staff and drive a 2009' Alpha 211 powered by a 250 Mercury Pro XS.  I highly recommend both Legend and Mercury to anyone I talk with.  I'm also on Dobyns Rods pro staff, assisting in placing rods in local stores, sales via the internet and am a representative on Ultimate Bass fielding questions on specific uses.

Volunteer:
