  • My first Competition was a steel match at a local Range in April 2012.
  • Since April 2012 placed 1st in “Carry” class twice, and 2nd in “Draw” at the local monthly Steel Match.
  • USPSA Range Officer
  • USPSA Production “C” Class

I fired my first Pistol at the Age of 10, it was a Beretta 92 that my father owned ( I loved the movie “Lethal Weapon 2” ). I was an avid Duck and Pheasant Hunter as a teenager. I graduated from Enumclaw High School and went to technical college in Phoenix, AZ. I obtained an Associates degree in Automotive Technology and became a factory certified Audi Technician. My free time in Arizona was spent in the desert shooting, and running the service department at Arizona Jet Ski. I came back to Washington and started my career as an Audi Technician. I become Master ASE certified and eventually end up working for Saab and Cadillac as well. I felt it was time for a change and started working for NW Safe Company in Enumclaw, WA. Once employed there, being at the gun show became a regular thing, and buying guns soon followed. I am now the Office Manager at NW Safe, and a safe technician.

I love shooting long range rifles, and target shooting with a close friend of mine. I was introduced to USPSA by Hunter Evans (Son of the world renowned gunsmith Brett Evans). I was also introduced to Steel Shooting by my mentor, and Production Grand Master Scott Pries. In the short time I have started shooting I have had some strong steel Match finishes, and have placed well at some USPSA matches. I became certified as a USPSA Range officer, and I look forward to introducing other new shooters to this great sport. I am proud to represent Rainier Ballistics as one of their sponsored shooters. I recognized Rainier Ballistics as a huge supporter of our local matches, they believe in the 2nd amendment, and they are a major asset to the firearms community. With them at my side, I hope to expand my skills, branch out into other types of competition and continue to introduce people to this great sport as well as this great family owned company.
