I'm 46 years old and Happily married for 24 years.
I have two sons 19 and 23 years old.
I work full time for The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company for 27 years as a quality assurance person.
I have fished all my life all over the United States catching almost every fresh water fish in the States.
I have a real passion for fishing it has always been a big part of my life. So when I go out I expect to catch fish.
I started to fish the Crappie USA tournament trail in 2010 and in our first season we qualified for the classic in October at Lake Pickwick AL.
I'm in an crappie fishing artical in the on-line sportsman magazine. Check the links page. I'm in the Sept 2010 issue page 38.
I have been published in the Game and Fish magazine two times for crappie fishing.
I helped start a crappie fishing club in Central Indiana called the Indiana Slab Masters.
My tournament partner and I finished the 2011 season with a 2nd, 3rd, two 5th places, 6th place, 7th place and we won the two day Classic event against 33 other boats.
In 2012 My tournament partner and I won 4 tournaments had two 2nd place finishes and two 3rd place finishes in the Indiana Slab Masters tournaments.
We won the BnM points title for the 2012 season.

We also had one first place, Two second places and a third place in the Indiana Slab Masters and we finished 4th in the two day classic.
We once again won the BnM points title for the second year in a row.
