I was born in Minnesota and grew up in south Florida spending free time hunting and fishing. I am President of a Publishing company and split time between San Francisco and Bozeman. I have volunteered as a casting instructor at the Golden Gate Angling & Casting Club and have worked as a raft guide and whitewater kayak instructor throughout the West. As an avid Backcountry Pilot, I have been blessed to see the spectacular beauty of Montana and the Intermountain West. I have a keen interest in the application of Science to support Conservation and UMOWA has been a proponent of that approach since its founding. The Missouri River is a world class fishery and through UMOWA I feel honored to be an advocate to help preserve and protect this special ecosystem.
