Favorite Quote


“What is Fly Fishing but a constant strive for perfection. A man must feel the rhythm of the river and become one with the calmness of the currents. Heating the call of the wild, not to fill the belly with food, but to fill the soul with beauty and wonder.” –Lars Lenth


Pet


Two rescue black lab mixes. Darth Vader 3 years old, lab hound dog mix, 100lbs. Olive Martini 2 years old, lab unknown mix, 50lbs.


Favorite Book


Some favorite books range back to The Phantom Tollbooth, Enders Game, The Hatchet Series, all the Harry Potter series (I am a bit of a nerd). More recently I’ve enjoyed House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski and The Cheese Monkey’s by Chipp Kidd.


Favorite Movie


I love cinematography, and a wide range of genres so this list goes on and on. But to list of few of my all time top favorites: The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Blues Brothers, Damnation, Pulp Fiction (really anything by Tarantino), Donnie Darko, Pan’s Labyrinth and The Bang Bang Club.


Hobbies


Anything that gets me out into nature. Fly Fishing is a passion of mine, any chance I can I love traveling to hook into big fish. I also enjoy tying my own flies during slower seasons. I love backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing/bouldering, mountain biking and snowboarding. I also enjoy photography, videography, sketching and painting.
