I have been an outdoorsman for as long as I can remember. One of my most vivid memories is of me, my father and our dogs hunting in the quiet Virginia woods when I was a kid.
I did not come to taxidermy immediately, though I have been in the business for a number of years. I have, however, always worked as an outdoorsman, including as a fence-maker and a fishing guide. My wife, Brandy (pictured here), and I moved to Cumby, TX, several years ago. I fell in love with the Texas countryside and finally let my lifelong love of the outdoors and of hunting get the best of me; I took up the taxidermists art.
I like to say that I’d been hooked on hunting since I was a kid,
but it took me about 40 years to figure out a way to make a living from it.
I apprenticed under a master taxidermist and, a few years ago, struck out on my own. I have won a dedicated clientele through my commitment to making high-quality mounts. By avoiding shoddy materials and shortcuts, and by taking the time to make a mount look the way it did when it was alive, I’ve been able to set myself apart from my peers and give a lot of people ways to relive their hunting experiences.
I am fortunate that I work as an artist and craftsman; I enjoy making something come alive again and giving people the opportunity to relive their experiences.And I am fortunate that, every day, I have the opportunity to interact with fellow hunters and share stories and experiences with them.
