I am the product manager for Jackson kayak. I was a kayaking junkie and met Eric Jackson, president of Jackson kayaks when I was in college. I was a professional kayaker at the time. I met him at an outdoor show Showed him some photos and he invited me to come onto the team. I managethe kayaks from idea to reality. I help develop marketable, sellable, functional concepts and then bring those to reality. We still have a huge presence in the whitewater space but now have moved into fishing kayaks. We have fishing kayaks for every genre, size and style of fishing you can think of. We have a kids kayak called a Skipper, we have a big kayak for big guys who want a bass fish out of them. This is for big guys who have never stood in a kayak and they want the ultimate in stability. We have off shore boats, riverboats, lake boats and a brand new fly fishing kayak. That is one of my brainchild culminations that we brought into production this year. It is totally snag free, very easy to stand in with tucked away and protected fly bins.
