I have lived in Middle Tennessee most of mylife. Born in Detroit, Michigan but moved to Tennessee as a infant.
My wife and I married in 1968 and have three adult children. For approx. the last 25 years we have cared for
foster infants, mostly new borns, when the birth mothers decide to give them up. We currently have our 87th baby

I have been a tournament fisherman for over 30 years. Most as a boater. I fished B.A.S.S. as a professional
for several years when everybody was a pro. When they changed to the co angler concept I moved to FLW and
Everstart. Many things changed on the professional front in the 1990,s and I went to the co angler side just to
be able to fish the majors. I qualified for three Everstart Championships as a pro and in 2002 the FLW Tour
championship as a co angler. I have fished many major events such as the Bassmaster Megabuks tournament,
the U.S.OPEN where I finished 3rd.

I am a public speaker with six plus years radio as well as several TV shows. I have served as Chaplain of the Tennessee House of Representives and Chairman of the Nashville Public Transporaton Board. I currently am Chaplain (7+ Years) of the
Smyrna, Tennessee Police Department.

I am a Pro Staff member of "AmericanBassShop.Com" and they are my primary sponsor. I live on the back side
of Percy Priest lake and can be in the water in 3 mintues from my driveway. Approx. 30 minutes to Old Hickory

I have had the privilege thru the years of being fishing partners with many of todays superstars, such as Larry
Nixon, Jay Yellas, Dion Hibdon, Russ Lane, Greg Hackney, Mark Davis, KVD, Brent Chapman, Randy Dearman, Rich
Clunn, David Fritts, J.T. Kenney and many others. I know what it takes to succed on the pro circuit...and I know how
important it is to promote and support my sponsors. I don't work miracles...but I sure try hard.
