    “I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.”

    Outdoorsman, Photog and Creative Ringer

    Here’s everything you need to know about me:


    I love being outdoors. I’m a hunter for the money shot. I live to travel. I believe riches come from experiences, not things. I’m half country-boy, half city-slicker. I'm not always politically correct, and I’m known in fishing circles as “The Trout Whisperer”. My latest toy is my fat-tire e-bike.


    It is important to me to live everyday to the fullest, because you never know what’s around the corner. I love adventure, travel, great food and good friends, preferably all at once. What I'm after can't be purchased.


    I'm blessed with three amazing, smart and beautiful daughters, and a caring, intelligent and handsome son. My wife is not a one in a million kind of girl. She is a once in a lifetime kind of woman.


    Life is too short to have just one dog, so my two Australian Shepherds accompany me on most of my outdoor adventures. Never underestimate the power of a sloppy kiss and a wet nose on a bad day.


    I was born in California and lived in a small copper mining town in Arizona from the age of 10 until I was 17. Both places I consider my home, but today I live in Bozeman, Montana, where the lifestyle matches my love for the outdoors.


    I have an older brother and two sisters. All of us are very different and each of them have chosen unique paths in life.


    My father was my hero and my mother was a very honest, independent and spiritual soul.


    I'm a serial entrepreneur and love creating things. I currently am involved in two startup companies and maintain a boutique creative agency.

  • never underestimate your strength, or overestimate your weakness.

    Confidence is not 'they will like me'. Confidence is 'I'll be fine if they don't.'


    I embrace living on the edge of strategy and creative

    I'm as comfortable crafting insights as I am creating big ideas

    I'm a visual thinker AND a good writer

    I'm comfortable working with a designer to create my own presentations or whipping them up myself

    I manage my own time against deliverables AND am comfortable working as a key team member

    I define solutions versus just delivering against them

    I'm not afraid to tackle the unknown

    I'm great with people at all levels

    I'm unfazed by tight deadlines and conflicting priorities and remain calm under pressure

    I'm a confident and engaging communicator and presenter

    I'm highly organized, with flawless attention to detail
    I believe you rise by lifting others


    I have a soft heart in a cruel world

    I no longer have the patience for meaningless friendships, forced interactions and unnecessary conversations

    I snore like a bear

    I am sometimes politically incorrect

    I can sometimes be rude, arrogant and complain too much

    I thought I wanted to be rich...turns out I just wanted to move to Montana and fly fish

    I spoil my daughters (total pushover)

    Way more.

    not necessarily to be strong,

    but to feel strong.

    and that's pretty much the same thing.

    always Thought I wanted to be rich and successful

  • Do what is right. Not what is easy.

    If you want something you never had. You have to do something you've never done.








    The most beautiful discovery true friends make is they can grow separately without growing apart.
