Raised in Biloxi Mississippi, Daniel chased redfish & speckled trout in the Mississippi Sound and the marshes of Southeast Louisiana growing up. Summers were spent with my grandfather hunting big bass in the backwaters of the Pascagoula River or paddling the Black Creek & Wolf River in a canoe. After graduating high school, I served ten years in the Air Force where I was stationed all over the world including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Diego Garia B.I.O.T, Iceland, England and South Korea. Upon separating from the service, I took my bass fishing to the next level finding success at University of Montevallo’s top ten ranked college fishing team and as the President from 2012-2015 (President 2014). I now live in Hoover Alabama and am heavily involved in the kayak bass fishing scene. I also participate regularly in local trails including Iron City Kayak Anglers, North Alabama Kayak Anglers, River Region Kayak Anglers and Cullman Kayak Anglers. Nationally, I have fished events with B.A.S.S., Hobie and Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF). I currently host The Advanced Kayak Angler Podcast.
