Shooting Experience

Since the first time I picked up a shotgun at my Troop’s shooting sports weekend, I have been hooked. I enjoy all types of shooting from my flintlock pistol to the AR-15 that I built. I enjoy shooting skeet and trap, but there is nothing better than a sporting clays course to challenge your skills. I earned my NRA Certified Instructor rankings at the age of 14 and now hold certifications in Pistol, Shotgun, and Muzzle Loading Rifle. I enjoy teaching with the Boy Scouts of America giving new scouts the same exciting experience I had when I first picked up a shotgun.

Hobbies

Shooting, off roading, fly fishing, hunting, restoring classic cars, RC truck racing, Ham Radio (KM4GBJ), archery, backpacking, biking, sailing, scouting and my dog.

Future Plans

I am enrolled as a freshman at Georgia Southern University with a declared major of Mechanical Engineering. I will be working at the schools Shooting Sports Education Center. After school I hope to work within the firearms or automotive industry creating the newest technology in the industry.
