My favorite place that I have fly fished was where I first picked up a fly rod in Yellowstone National Park, however the Wissahickon Creek will forever have a place in my heart.

Besides fly fishing, what other outdoor activities do you enjoy?
Aside from fly fishing I also love camping, bushcraft, mushroom hunting, foraging, birding, geocaching, and gardening
My fishing journey began while living in Philadelphia where I fell in love with urban fishing and exploring the local waterways. From catching flathead catfish in the Schuylkill, carp in the Manayunk Canal, and wading my beloved Wissahickon Creek. I first picked up fly fishing on a camping trip in Yellowstone National Park and fell in love immediately. The idea of finding materials, tying flies, and catching fish on them has and continues to be a visceral and profound experience. My professional background has been in restaurant/hospitality service, and I am excited to be a part of the TCO team where I can take that experience and help curate fun and collaborative events for the fly fishing community.
