- Who got you into hunting / fishing? Why do you still do it?
- Father, Grandfathers(s), Uncles - I still hunt and fish for the food, for the connection to the natural world, and for the freedoms those activities provide me. I am a hunter, therefore I hunt.
- How do you prepare for a hunt?
- Research, practice, organize gear, develop a plan. I get to hunt 100+ days per year, so I have to be organized and dialed in to keep our operation producing hunting media content year-long.
- What is your favorite hunting / fishing memory?
- Being with my son when he shot his first bull elk. Everything else is a distant second.

- Bugling bull elk with a bow on the public lands of the west.
- What is the most beautiful thing you've seen while out on a hunt?
