My father introduced me to firearms, archery and other outdoor activities at a young age. Because of him, I have had many years of enjoyment centered around shooting activities, a luxury not everyone gets. Working as a Foreman and Superintendent in the construction industry, and being a father myself, I have learned how to teach and convey information based on an individuals personality and skill level. After deciding to combine my passion for shooting with my own skills as a superintendent, I trained for and received my credentials as an instructor through the NRA. Firearm Fundamentals soon followed, not only offering a selection of NRA approved courses but also the Nevada CCW Course. I take pride in the fact that my classes offer more personal attention for the students and a safe practical approach to firearm ownership and use.
