My wife and I relocated to Portland, Oregon for her career in 2012, after 16 years in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I have nearly 20 years’ experience in outdoor industry/specialty retail sales, customer service, retail management, product buying and personnel management. Specifically, I worked in the Skiing, Fly-Fishing, Backpacking and Footwear departments for Jack Dennis Outdoor Shop. In addition to management responsibilities in a mature business, as well as over ten years of guiding under my belt, I then initiated the purchase of Jack Dennis Fishing Trips, and the start-up phase of the new Grand Teton Fly Fishing guide service. My responsibilities included hiring, training, product buying, marketing and securing new clientele. Although I still own the business in Jackson, I've transitioned out of the day-to-day responsibilities, and have transitioned into a new full-time role with Korkers Products, in Portland, Oregon.
