I formed Fired Up Fishing Charters in 2007 and over the last 9 years we’ve managed to grow considerably each year by having so many repeat charter guests by gaining their trust and respect by showing them exceptional customer service while putting them on fish to create an overall Epic Fishing Experience. I feel blessed to have a winning team stand behind me with some of the most awesome friendly, knowledgably fishing captains you could ask for. (Check out my other captain’s bios for more information).
In June 2009 my son Cash was born and he is the ultimate love of my life and raising him has been the most rewarding job ever. He enjoys fishing too just as I did when I was a kid and I love being able to teach him the ropes at an early age just like my father did for me.
This sums me up in a nutshell …. I’ve truly been blessed with a great life, a wonderful family and doing the things I love most in life. I look forward to being able to have you as Fired Up Charter customer and building a relationship and as I do with so many of my other charter guests.
After I fulfilled my 8 years in the Navy I moved to Orlando, Florida where I began fishing the waters of along the East Coast mostly in the Port Canaveral & Cocoa Beach area. My goal since I was young was to be a professional fishermen and I once I set my mind to something nothing can stop me. I started out as a mate on one of the top offshore fishing boats in Cape Canaveral and did that for a few years and gained a wealth of knowledge which helped prepare me for my Coast Guard Captain’s license which I’ve had for the last 8 years. In between being on the water I decided to become a full time Firefighter/Paramedic with a local Fire Department a career I love and find so rewarding by helping others not to mention it’s a great schedule working 24 hours on shift & 48 hours off which gives me plenty of time for fishing.
One of my first jobs while I was still in school was at the local bait shop. This was a great job for me since I needed to earn some extra money & what better way than to do something I had a passion for which was fishing!! I always knew at some point I wanted to pursue Florida fishing charters. I did not know Fired Up Charters deep sea fishing was in my plans. But deep sea fishing Florida wasn't too far away. I learned so much about fishing, tackle, various baits/lures to use for different types of fish, all sorts of fishing knots, terminology and knowledge that I still use to this day.
