My Passion for firearms took off when I Joined the Army in 1993. I quickly learned that I love to pass on my knowledge and experience. I got my first permit from Bold Enterprises before it was Bold...David Arnold is my instructor and mentor. Starting as a Range Safety Officer, started building my training Portfolio to eventually buying Bold in 2016. Teaching, Coaching and selling firearms is what I do everyday both professionally and personally.
I'd call shooting my hobby but that would suggest I do anything else with my time. Since I got my first Red Ryder BB gun at 7 I've loved shooting. I spent 4 years in the Marine Corps (so please use small words when talking to me), I graduated from Pine Tech with a gunsmithing certificate, and in my free time I travel all over the US taking classes. I have a passion for rifle shooting and refining concealed carry, both from an equipment and soft skills stand point.
Growing up without firearms and living in a bad area in my younger years I was absolutely terrified of guns for a long time. One day I stepped up and decided I should at least inform myself and learn how to use a gun. I met Hans when I was purchasing my first gun. I signed up for a class with him and from there he took me under his wing. Finding that I love learning about and using firearms I decided to become an instructor with Bold. This isn't just a hobby for me, this is now a lifestyle. I love that I can help others not only learn to protect themselves but also help them learn to manifest their confidence.
