How did you get into your field?
I grew up an avid outdoorsman, ultimately resulting in me starting my own small outfitter business. When I was presented the opportunity to come to Cordillera Ranch, I took the job without hesitation.
How long have you been with Cordillera Ranch?
What do you like the most about working at Cordillera Ranch?
I don’t believe I could narrow it down to one thing, but if I had to it would be the members. They have been extremely accepting and welcoming.
What has been your greatest challenge in your business?
It is probably the slow times. We sometimes go a few days without members enjoying the outdoor recreation amenities on the ranch and I often wonder, “What are all these people doing instead of enjoying the great outdoors with us?”
What has been your most rewarding experience in your business?
Getting to show people the rivers and woods; teaching people how to do something I love and watching them grow to love the outdoors as well.
What is your favorite aspect of working/living in the Hill Country?
I love that you can round any corner and find a small fishing hole or see an amazing amount of grazing deer. The people here are great as well.
What are your hobbies/interests?
Fly fishing, hunting, kayaking; anything outdoors.
What’s your favorite sport?
Favorite sporting event you’ve attended?
Colonial PGA event in Ft. Worth
“Live a life you don’t need a vacation from.”
Favorite movie and why?
Almost Heroes. Chris Farley was one of the funniest people alive during this movie. You’ll just have to watch it.
Anything else that you would like to share about yourself?
I love to play the guitar and sing with my beautiful wife who is a world-class fiddler.
