As a dedicated "Glass Geek", I have been writing The Fiberglass Manifesto to promote the builders and companies that produce fiberglass fly rods.  Over time the focus has broadened to include reel makers, artists, photographers, writers, fly tiers, gear makers, conservation, filmmakers, and really anything else that I feel is noteworthy within the fly fishing industry.  T.F.M. is also my personal fly fishing journal where I chronicle trips (however infrequent) with photos and narrative.

I strive to provide readers with original content that is informative and enjoyable to read which includes interviews, press releases, gear reviews, photography, videos, and along with occasional contests and gear giveaways.

Besides writing T.F.M., I am a husband, father of two young children, and have a career that keeps me busier than you might believe.

I continue to try to get better at what I am doing and am an active member of the Outdoors Writers Association of America (OWAA) and the South Carolina Outdoor Press Association (SCOPe).  I am also a media member of the American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA) as I have a real interest in where this industry is going in the future.

Interested in learning more?  I've been fortunate to have been interviewed on a few podcasts to include the Orvis Fly Fishing Podcast, Wet Fly Swing, The Itinerant Angler, Remote. No Pressure., Traditional Outdoors, In the Seam, The Articulate Fly, and both the Remote. No Pressure., The BackCast Podcast, and the Orvis Fly Fishing Podcast for a second time.  Give each podcast episode a listen when you get a chance.

Lastly, thank you for reading T.F.M. and if you have any questions, ideas, or concerns, please send an email.
