About: I was raised in Wyandotte Oklahoma and met my wife in Joplin ,Mo in 1994 and were married in 1996 and have 2 wonderful girls. I started fishing around the age of 4 years old with my my dad and was hooked. When I would get out of school my dad and I would go fishing in some friends ponds all the time through high school every chance we could. I didn't know much about tournament fishing until after high school and wanted to do that one day. In 2013 I had a tragic loss of my parents killed by a drunk driver. My life has changed and it's been a tough 5 years but God has got me through the tough times and ready for 2019 season.
