I have worked, hunted, and fished my way around the U.S. since leaving my Appalachian home in 2003. Now settled in Southeast Washington, my career focus is public lands recreation and wildlife habitat management.

My home life is devoted to maintaining a small homestead for produce and valley quail, serving Pheasants Forever as a Life Member, officer and Advisory Board member for the Blue Mountain chapter, and exploring our wild places with a pack of Llewellin setters.

Presently, I contribute freelance to the occasional magazine and pen the following columns.

Palouse OutdoorsThe Waitsburg Times

Upland Pursuits – published across the East Oregonian, Baker City Herald and La Grande Observer

Steppe Outside Walla Walla Union Bulletin

Conservation News Writer and magazine contributor for Harvesting Nature.

My book Wingshooting the Palouse published in 2022 in cooperation with Keeoke Books, and is likely the gateway to many more.

Experiencing and writing about the outdoors, promoting conservation, and reliving every precious minute afield are my passions. I’ve been humbled by the kindness, comradery, and encouragement I have experienced across the outdoor and author/publishing communities over the years. I feel honored and blessed to be a part of both.
