Bio

I was born and raised in Green River, Wyoming.  My mom was an elementary school teacher and my dad was a Wyoming game warden (he retired in 2014 after 41 years with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department).  As far back as I can remember, I had a passion for Wyoming's wildlife and worked toward becoming a game warden myself.  I studied wildlife management at the University of Wyoming and landed my dream job in early 2000.  Throughout my career, I have been stationed in areas with large reservoirs, rivers, streams and lot of recreational boating and fishing.  The expertise I gained from these duty stations put me in a good position to interview for my current position as our law enforcement coordinator/BLA.  I am now in my fourth year of serving in that capacity.  I have learned a lot in this role and have truly enjoyed being a part of the NASBLA community.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time in the outdoors with my wife, Heather, and our two dogs, Penny and Vern.  Hunting, fishing, camping, kayaking and hiking are a few of our pursuits.  To break up the long Wyoming winters, we like to take an annual scuba diving trip or two to the Caribbean or some other warm-water destination.
