I was born and raised in West Central Ohio in a farming community. My youth was spent working on family and neighboring farms. When the work was finished, I could be found exploring the woods. I attended Hocking College majoring in Wildlife Biology, and Adrian College in Michigan to study Environmental Science. My wife Britney and I along with our Daughter Ashton now live in East Central Indiana (Richmond). Where we raise quail, practice beekeeping, and spend as much time as possible in the woods.
