I am currently a graduate student studying aquatic biology, specifically focusing on habitat restoration in aquatic ecosystems. I grew up outside Philadephia, PA and am now temporarily living in Wisconsin's Driftless Region. My free time is spent in a stream, on a lake, or somewhere in between. My passion for fishing stems from my youth and has led me in several directions from competitive bass fishing to backcountry fly fishing adventures. I pride myself on this diveristy as it has allowed me to develop an immense knowledge in fishing. I have been fortunate for opportunities to travel both across the US and internationally chasing a variety of fish species with my fly rods. When I am not fishing, you will find me tying flies, camping, backpacking, drinking beer, and documenting my experiences with my camera.
