I learned how to carve ducks with my father when I was about 15 years old. I left for the military in 2003 and returned to a career as a helicopter pilot for law enforcement. After getting settled in Florida, I began carving again. My father carved with Ed Gray and Dennis Felts in northern Maryland. He passed on what he learned from them to myself. I am happy to continue the tradition and hopefully one day will pass it on to one of my children.
