ABOUT THE HOST:
I have been working in the outdoor products industry for over fifteen years. I've been fortunate to work with talented teams, developing, marketing and selling gear for all types of users - backpackers, campers, anglers, hunters and tactical professionals.
I developed this podcast to create a positive forum in which professionals, enthusiasts and influencers can discuss pressing topics and the industry we love.
I'm an active backpacker, angler, shooter, kayaker and cyclist.
And I'm not above taking the family camping in a rented RV.
