My greatest desire in this world begins and ends with a quality lifestyle not only for my family and myself, but I hope that in my journey through this crazy life, that I can inspire hope in others to do the same. I think that we all can agree and learn to understand that our days on this earth are numbered, therefore it is up to us to learn and sometimes fight for a meaningful life of value. I believe that value comes from your roots; It’s who you are, it’s what you believe in and it’s the purpose driving you to be the absolute best version of yourself.
My roots can be found in a small town in upstate New York, where as a family, countless hours were spent learning about the appreciation for the conservation of the land and its habitat. Growing up, I acquired a deep respect for life in the great outdoors – A place where we had our most memorable experiences as a family and learned that the time spent together was what held the most value.
Your kids will do what you do. I have no greater purpose for the lifestyle that I choose to live, than knowing that I am setting the standard for our son and future children. When I am not focusing on teaching them about the values behind hunting and the great outdoors, I will be teaching them about living a healthy and active lifestyle. For my family, those values go hand-in-hand, and if those values can inspire hope and vision in others to improve their quality of life, then we are doing pretty good.
