I grew up in Minnesota and joined the Navy after high school. I've had the privilege to live in some great states for outdoor activities; South Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Colorado, and now New Jersey.

I try to spend a lot of time outdoors; backpacking, camping, hiking, road cycling, hunting and fishing.

I look forward to testing and reviewing gear with my family! My three boys will definitely make sure that gear is durable.
