I am saved by grace through Christ. I am a Husband with 2 grown daughters and I'm a Grandfather of 6. My wife and I share our home with a grumpy cat named Jax and a loving dog named Oliver (after Mr. Edwards who continues to inspire me). I am an Engineer in the telecommunications industry and on the weekends I work in several bands as a professional upright bassist. I hold a Commercial Pilot License with Instrument and Multi Engine ratings. I once held a State of Massachusetts pyrotechnics license and worked on a professional fireworks crew.
I am dedicated to river trout fishing and have been fly fishing and tying for over a decade. I love the traditions and history of the sport and really enjoy tying the old patterns from Great Britain and the Catskills.
