About Me

I grew up in a farming community in Utah,  and enjoyed spending a lot of time in the outdoors fishing, shooting, hunting, camping, four-wheeling, hiking etc.  


I love anything related to the outdoors.  In more recent years I have become very interested in shooting sports and in particular ultra long-range shooting (shooting up to 2000 yards).  


I am happily married and have two wonderful daughters.


Finally, I am a dedicated Red Sox, Cowboys, Jazz and BYU Cougar fan.
