MEET YOUR CAPTAIN
I was born and raised in Bradenton, Florida and I am a 2nd generation native Floridian.
I began fishing at the age of 4. I earned my first boat at age 9 and immediately began exploring the backwaters from North Tampa Bay to South Sarasota. As I got older I expanded my fishing ventures north to John’s Pass and south - fishing the waters of Venice, Bokeelia and Sanibel Island, Boca Grande Pass, and the Florida Keys from Islamorada to Key West, Florida. I also spent 4 years Commercial Fishing with local Cortez fishermen who came from multiple generations fishing out of Cortez.
I joined the U.S. Army as a military Police officer, was stationed in Germany for 3 years and volunteered to go to Afghanistan for 1 year. During that time, I earned the rank of Sergeant with various combat and commendation medals and awards. I also hold my AS degree in Criminal Justice. I was honorably discharged from the Army and began school to pursue my first love - a career on the water.
I earned my 100 Ton Master Captain’s license with a Towing Endorsement and a technical degree in Marine Mechanics. I have worked on some of the best charters in Sarasota and Bradenton over the years. Now I am proud to have my own. Whether you want a day at Egmont Key to explore, go scalloping in the waters to the north, hit lobster week in the Keys, or take a sunset cruise around Sarasota, I cannot wait to show you the Florida lifestyle on my boat with Florida Inshore Adventures. You’ll be hooked!

TAKING CARE OF OUR WATERWAYS AND OUR COMMUNITY
At Florida Inshore Adventures, we believe in being involved in protecting our oceans and waterways and the fish, birds and animals that depend on them. We are very careful with our trash and fishing gear to ensure minimal impact to the environment. We maintain our vessel to the highest standards. Because we have both an engine and a trolling motor, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint. You might see us fishing plastics out of the river or bay - we want to leave our waters better than we found them.
We support the Mote Marine Laboratory and serve as a vessel for turtle releases and animal rescue. We also believe in educating the next generation on the value of protecting our waters and support local schools with Marine Science programs, such as Saint Stephens Episcopal School in Bradenton.
