Growing up in and around Central Florida, I’ve never had a lack of fishable water, or a lack of fishing friends. The best part to me is always finding new water to fish, as exploration really fuels my mind. There’s something about hidden creeks in the forests, or racing to a small run that’s sure to run dry with the out-going tide.
I used to have a huge focus in my life called YakAngling Magazine, and it absolutely brought me closer to the industry. With that and a background in marketing and social media management, I found myself networking and making good friends with Mark Steven Crouse. He is the one who ultimately introduced me to Curtis and opened this door. To say I’m humbled is an understatement.
Fast forward more than half a decade, and my passion lies in helping businesses grow. Founded a company called NextFish, and we operate the marketing side of numerous businesses in the fishing industry, as well as non-endemics, too. From the foundation of a business' digital footprint to the vehicle that is their marketing and sales.
