As a seasoned veteran of the woods and waters, I enjoy sharing over 35 years of hunting and fishing experiences and knowledge with outdoorsmen and women across the Midwest.

As a freelance outdoor communicator, I provide news, articles, information, destinations, product reviews and recipes to a wide variety of print and online publications throughout Chicagoland and the Midwest.

I share information and photos here on my website, as well as a blog on ChicagoNow.com. I also produce award-winning articles and columns for many local and national newspapers and magazines listed below.

And be sure to sign up for my monthly newsletter containing great places to hunt and fish, gear reviews, and great recipes.
