I started Kwee-Jack Fish Co. in 2009 after fishing the Bristol Bay, Alaska area since 2004 with friends. This business has given me the opportunity to wear many hats ranging from owner and boat captain, to boat mechanic, fisherman, and now salmon connoisseur. I was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and I have been fortunate to spend the summers for more than the last decade fishing Alaska’s Bristol Bay. In the off-season, I live in Billings, MT with my wife Angela and our two boys. I am happy to be able to offer hand-picked wild Alaskan salmon to friends and family across the country, as it is a product that I truly believe has benefits for all.
My fishing story begins on the dock. Working summers through college on the beach gang for a salmon processor in Bristol Bay. Among the duties of the dock crew was supporting the fisherman, and it was here that I first met Joe and other Alaska commercial fishermen. With the contacts I made there I began commercial fishing in other fisheries and immediately realized that in Bristol Bay I was working on the wrong side of the bull rail. My brother Cody and I bought set net operations and have been fishing them ever since. Over ten years later, I am still very proud to spend my time producing/distributing the healthiest food in the world in sustainable and ecologically friendly manner.
I grew up in Billings, Montana under the Big Sky. I have dedicated my life to pursuing health for me and my family. When I am not outside playing with my husband Joe (your fisherman!) and our two young boys, I can usually be found working in my garden or cooking up some healthy meal. Both Joe and I are passionate about bringing the freshest, healthiest salmon from Alaska directly to our friends and family. With CSFs in different locations throughout the country, even more people will have the chance to experience this amazing health food!
After growing up in the Pacific Northwest (as Joe’s sister), I settled in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where I work in construction management. The rest of the time you’ll find me at home with my husband, surrounded by farm land, raising two fun-loving kids who are growing up too fast. Trying to fill our freezer with fresh, healthful food, and loving it when personal connections make it a small world after all, it is only natural to provide Alaska’s finest salmon to friends, family and whomever they tell, for Kwee-Jack Fish Co. in the mid-Atlantic region.
I’m a web developer by day, and a fishermen by night. Every year I bring our very best wild Alaskan sockeye salmon to my friends in Madison, Wisconsin. I’ve lived in Madison since 2013 with my wife, Katie, and four awesome kids. When I’m not building websites or fishing, you may find me on my bike or playing my guitar.
