South Central Wisconsin has been called home my entire life. I was born and raised on a dairy farm outside of Cambria, WI in Columbia County. My family continues to cash crop and graze Angus on those lands. It was on this farm that I learned that farming is not merely a career and a way to make a living, but rather a way of life.
In the surrounding fields and woods, I grew up with great friends chasing ducks, geese, and whitetails. Bowhunting whitetails has been a passion of mine for over 30 years. It is a love of the process which includes scouting and stand placement, as well as understanding timber management, food plots and crop rotations. My lifelong friend, Jason Syens, approached me about filming our adventures and in 2008 we began that challenge with White Knuckle Productions. It has been a part of our lives ever since.
I attended UW-Stevens Point and graduated with a teaching degree. My life in education and coaching has been committed to helping others obtain what is important to them. I bring that same commitment to Midwest Lifestyle Properties. I don’t know that there is a better way to enjoy everything the great outdoors has to offer than to share that passion with other like-minded people. I would love to assist you with your land and residential goals!

I grew up in rural WI in a little town called Friesland. It was there that I would develop a passion for hunting; which became a passion for deer and land management in general. I Joined White Knuckle Productions in Jan of 2008 along with my lifelong friend Dave Prochnow. I have hunted my whole life and have a passion for filming not just the hunt, but the journey to that hunt as well.
Professionally, after come college, and a brief summer driving “The Ducks” in Wisconsin Dells, I took a job selling cars and it was there that I learned that I loved helping people. Getting paid for it was even better. For some time, I have tried to find a way to blend my passion for sales with my passion for the outdoors.
Well this year a friend whom I had worked with in the car business, convinced me to hang up my car biz career and come to work for Realtree’s United Country Hunting Properties. In March of 2019 I took a leap of faith. It will be on this page you can follow along with me on my journey, the ups, downs, and in between.
As for White Knuckle Productions, our Web Show’s are filmed all-over the mid-west and are primarily Bowhunting, All Fair Chase, and All Self-guided. I am also the host of The White Knuckle Podcast, which is a podcast about all things Bowhunting/Hunting and in general anything related to the outdoors. TheWKP teamdoes all of our own scouting and stand set-ups, food plots, tree planting and everything in between. We hunt on both private and public lands. We show every aspect of the hunt, not just the seconds leading up to the kill. We are hunters just like you, we get no special treatment or hand-outs, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
