About The Speaker

The woods been with me ever since me and my family moved out on the country when I was 5 years old.

We had a small stream close by where I fished trout and the forest became my playground where I spent as much time as I could. It is closed to 40 years ago now but I am still playing as much as I can in the woods and have a child’s curiosity in learning new things and being outdoors. Read more >
