Personal Info

Not married and no children. My hobbies are photography and training kids in competition shooting. The other interests are in collecting sniper rifles and movies.


The main reason I became a director is to develop shooting programs for youth and adults, especially for the youth. Currently, not enough resources are being devoted to developing the youth to maintain the future of shooting in this country.


I was hoping to develop a shooting program at the university level, but that isn’t going to happen until programs are developed at least the high school and grade school levels. The universities like to see more support at the high school and grade school levels. Therefore, I have gotten one of the local charter schools, which is growing at a very fast rate that will soon rival the size of some of the local public schools so much that they want to build their own school, to also build along with it a shooting range. This would be a great opportunity for the CMP to provide the resources for this new range. The school has offered to maintain and operate this range.
