Since I was a little kid, fishing, hunting and being outdoors has always been my passion. I’ll always remember my very first steelhead caught along the lower Sandy River near Troutdale, Oregon with my dad when I was 12 years old.

Now, over forty years has passed and I’ve been able to share countless memories with my wife and sons as they’ve caught their first steelhead.

My role as the NW Director of the Sportsmen’s Conservation Project and manager of the Wild Steelhead Initiative puts me in an amazing place, where I have the privilege of working with some incredibly passionate, hard working volunteers, fellow TU staff members, members of a wide variety of state and federal agencies as well as elected officials in county, state and federal offices. I really do have the best job in the world!
