I started my full time taxidermy studio in 1996. During my career, I’ve had the honor to serve as a Director and President of the PA Taxidermist Association. I have won numerous awards from Best of Shows to all specialty awards for my work in bird and waterfowl taxidermy. Additionally, I enjoy mounting all types of small and big game. I also love to judge and teach taxidermy techniques. Thanks to some great judges and friends, and my experience from years of competing, I have attained the highest honors in the taxidermy industry – 2x PA State Champion.
In 2017, I followed my dream of becoming a U.S.C.G. Licensed Captain. I also became a Licensed Delaware Guide. This allowed me to expand my business to include Fishing Charters and Sea Duck Hunts in Delaware.
I was raised in a home along the Susquehanna River and at a young age I began studying birds and bird behavior, especially in the spring. Living in the same town as I was raised, not much has changed. Studying birds is still a favorite pastime of mine, as well as hunting them in the cold winter months. As the waterfowl season closes each year, I begin looking forward to a new year of fishing and hunting. Most importantly, I enjoy spending time with my wife, our children, and the rest of our beautifully blended family.
