I spent 10 years working for the National Wild Turkey Federation, first as a Regional Director, and finally as their first Director of Development. I then became Executive Director of the American Museum of Fly Fishing, a position I held for almost 7 years – making me the longest serving director of that institution in its history (trust me, that’s an accomplishment!). I left the nonprofit world to become, happily, a self-employed carpenter/cabinet maker. Leaving the nonprofit grind was the single smartest move I ever made! And now, at 61, I try VERY hard to fish more than I work. I’m getting pretty good at that.
