Owner/Manager of Stillwater Outfitters
I was born and raised on the Front Range of Colorado in the small farming town of Brighton. I grew up in a hunting family. My father hunted every chance he had, involving my brother and I from a very young age. I still reside here with my beautiful wife Amy, daughter Addison, and son Teagan.
I attended umpire school in 1997 after attending Western State College on a wrestling scholarship and began working my way thru the minor league system. I got the chance in 2005 to attain one of my goals in life and umpire at the Major League level. I have recently retired as a professional umpire to continue to pursue my lifelong dream in the outfitting industry.
I grew up hunting waterfowl, elk, deer, pheasant, and turkey. I love hunting all the above, but waterfowl and archery elk is what really gets me excited. You can find me hunting for about 90-100 days a year throughout the U.S. I generally hit three or four different states with Idaho and North Dakota being two of my favorite. It’s just hard to beat a late season Mallard hunt on the Snake River of Idaho.

I grew up in Lakewood, Colorado but now live up north in Thornton. I was raised in a hunting and fishing family and have loved every aspect of both for as long as I can remember–whether it was deer and elk hunting in the mountains or waterfowl hunting across the front range.
It was my junior year in high school though when I got my first goose call and some decoys that would take my love for waterfowl hunting to the next level. After calling that first group of geese in all by myself I was hooked. For me, there isn’t anything better than hunting geese and have dedicated myself to waterfowl ever since.
In the off-season you will still find me outdoors. My dad and I have our own painting business that keeps me busy, but if I’m not working, I’m either playing golf or fishing and counting down the days until the next goose season.
I am an avid hunter with a huge passion for waterfowl hunting. For the last 30 years, I have been hunting waterfowl and wait in anticipation every year for the upcoming season.
I also enjoy archery hunting big bull elk and mule deer with my friends and family but none of them compare to big flocks of geese cupped up and landing in my spread of decoys.
I grew up in Brighton, Colorado, and waterfowl hunting is what I love to do. I think the only thing better is spending time with my family. I married my high school sweetheart, Krista, and we have two wonderful children — Owen and baby Samantha. My chocolate lab, Trip, enjoys hunting almost as much as I do.
I earned my degree in Horticulture from Colorado State University and now work for the Arbor Valley Nursery north of Brighton. I love my job, but when I get the chance to sneak away and guide a group of hunters, I jump at the chance. I have a lifetime of experience as a caller and hunter. I compete in many calling competitions across the U.S. — placing in the top three in numerous contests and still improving every day.
I’m known as a dependable guide that has many repeat groups, but I love hunting with them time and time again. Not only do I get out of work, but I also get the chance to be out in the field doing what I love.
My love for the outdoors started at an early age while fishing with my dad. I grew up in a military family, and we moved to Aurora, Colorado in 1989. My best friend’s dad had a waterfowl lease on a large lake along the Front Range. It was there that my love for waterfowl hunting began.
I went to college in Trinidad and Gunnison. During this time, I chased big game and upland birds with friends. In 2000, I bought a home northeast of Denver and gained access to some private land on the South Platte River near Greeley. I killed a pair of wood ducks my first time out, and haven’t been interested in hunting anything but waterfowl since.
My whole life revolves around my wife and daughter, but any spare time I have from October to mid-February, you can probably find me in a duck blind along the Platte or in a goose pit in the middle of a cornfield. The ideal hunting scenario for me would be a December or January duck hunt along the South Platte River with my black lab, Teal by my side. I jump at the chance to take a group out hunting, whether it’s first-timers or some seasoned waterfowlers looking for another experience such as hunting with a world-class outfitter like Stillwater.
