I have spent most of my life surrounded by great BBQ. I grew up in the birthplace of the pellet grill, the Mid Willamette Valley, and have been cooking on pellet grills since I was able to flip the switch on a Traeger three position controller.
In the summer of 2017 I was given the opportunity to join the Pit Boss and Louisiana Grills team. Since joining Louisiana Grills and Pit Boss, my BBQ world has expanded into lump charcoal, propane, and wood chip smokers.
During my career I have been involved in the development and testing of multiple grills and grilling accessories. I was directly involved in the development of the Traeger Outdoor Fire Pit, Traeger Timberline, Traeger Century, and the original line of the Traeger Pro Series. I am currently working on the Louisiana Grills Founders Series and the spring line of Pit Boss Grills.
As someone fully immersed in the BBQ world, I am grilling on a daily basis. I regularly post my cooks in my Instagram story. If you ever have questions on BBQ, equipment, or cooking, feel free to contact me. I am always up for helping!
