As a lifelong resident of Illinois, some of my first memories of the outdoors came through scouting. My professional career as a sales representative in the Outdoor Industry has led me to serving on several committees of the American Sportfishing Association and as a board member through being the President of the Tackle and Shooting Sports Agents organization.

Over the years through participation in the Navy Pier "Free Fishing Days", Chicago Park District "Take a Kid Fishing" events and the annual Illinois State Rifle Association Range Day, I've been able to see the fun residents have once they have the opportunity to enjoy the state.

The Illinois Conservation Foundation and Torstenson facility is in a unique position to extend these opportunities by introducing kids to many outdoor learning experiences. I am anxious to reciprocate with this introduction of conservation, as others have provided to me over the years.
