Introduction When I’m not teaching elementary school in San Diego or taking my wife and girls out for sushi, I travel the globe to get photos and content for the articles and cover shots I contribute to the world’s top fishing magazines, including Marlin, Sport Fishing, Bluewater Boats, Saltwater Sportsman, and Pacific Coast Sportfishing. This past year I visited some wonderful hotspots in Nicaragua, Panama, Guatamela, Kona, Costa Rica, and The Amazon. My website,, features fishing and travel related articles, photographs, stories, and videos. I got my start in the business by writing articles about my big game kayak fishing adventures. After catching 8 marlin from my kayak and being featured on National Geographic TV’s "Hooked: Monster Fish", I decided to concentrate solely on fishing related travel and photojournalism. Rather than catching the fish on hook and line, it's now all about getting the scoop and the great shot, and I'm having the time of my life!
