Hey everybody! I am originally from Connecticut, and am a former Coast Guardsman. I worked on an ice breaker in New York Harbor before getting a transfer here to defrost on Ft Myers Beach as part of the Search and Rescue team. After my service with the Coast Guard I decided to stay in Fort Myers Beach. I began guiding in 2003 and am our primary fishing guide. I am a certified Coastal Florida Master Naturalist and am a closet birder lol. Over the years, I have been fortunate to have built up a long list of clients and many return customers. I now book up months in advance and love what I do!
The community votes me best backwater fishing guide in Ft Myers Beach and I love to take out kids to get them outside. My patience and hard working ethic contributes to my success as a guide and I work great with all ages and skill levels. I am very knowledgeable of the local waterways and wildlife and will to my best to provide you and your family with an experience that you will cherish for a lifetime.
