Since my book was released on August 8th at Amazon it's been #1. Huge thanks to Mark Zona, Palaniuk, Zaldain, Mazur, Nof, Tony D, Mangus, Lutz, TB, Stephen Neslage, and everyone else who helped me make it, there are way too many to list. Also thanks to my dad for giving me the ability, and to my wonderful peers and professors at Oneonta State for helping me become the writer I am today.

Welcome back to my second blog, this week I go back in time and walk you through how I got into the mental health field, and why I chose to end my career there and start fishing and writing full time. It was a very big decision in my life at that time, probably the biggest of my life then and now. But it was not something that I regret. This is a pretty honest recap. The biggest thing I want you to take from it is that you can do whatever you want, as long as you believe in yourself.

Welcome YouTube to my first Vlog! I called this Be Real because this is me, stripped down, and being real with everyone. This is probably the most personal video I've ever posted and is in response to finding out that someone I thought was a good friend, wasn't at all. My next vlog will go into my history, and show you guys how I went from working 9-5, to fishing and writing full time.

Thanks for the support, love you guys.

This is the first video in the #teamnosleep series featuring myself and Emily Hamilton (@emilyhfishing). Emily is staying with me in NY for a couple weeks and we're tearing up the lakes, from the giant Lake Trout that you will see in this video with the Sheltra Brothers Todd and Robin of StrikeZone Charters, to the monster largemouth and smallmouth of some of the most prestigious waters in the Northeast United States. For this video, we left my house around 3am, drove over 2 hours to Ontario, and fought some world class lake trout! We finished off the day with a quick stop at Fat Nancy's before heading home. Be sure to subscribe and don't forget to subscribe to Emily's channel as well!

Thanks!

I just finished my second annual Take Me Fishing event and it was a great time. It's a youth event sponsored by the Geneva Recreation Department in Geneva NY, at the top of Seneca Lake. We had over 50 kids and a bunch of really great parents come learn some tips from myself and my friends Jim Everard from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and angler Rob Slocum. I want to give a very special thanks to Rob for bringing baits, to Jim for his time and gear, Bass Pro Shops in Auburn for donating fishing rods and reels, and especially to Janelle Drach for inviting us (me) and to the City of Geneva and the Recreation Department for putting on such a great event.

See you at next year's event. Until then, keep fishing!
