Most people see me as a businessman, a figure in the political world and a family man. While I certainly love all of these things, I also felt the need to work on a passion project in the world of hunting, fishing and adventure. Myself, along with several friends launched Field Ethos Journal as a small business dedicated to telling the stories of time in the field. Our brand focuses on the things that truly matter to us: the places we go, the people we meet, the cultures we experience, the adventures that lie in wait for anyone willing to take a step into the unknown and the global successes of conservation that preserve all of these things for generations to come. I hope you’ll follow along and even take part in what we’re doing. Life’s greatest adventures are ahead of us all.
I hunt adventure and experiences. Having devoted a significant portion of my life to the front lines of conservation, environmental protection and my own outdoor pursuits, I’ve become more and more concerned with the modern narratives influencing the next generation of sporting men and women. Field Ethos is in response to these things. We’re dedicated to the bigger picture of it all - the relationships we form, the amazing places we go and our responsibility to tell the unapologetic truth about who we are as sportsmen.
After spending all my adult life, hunting, fishing and vagabonding through every continent as a writer, photographer and storyteller I decided to join the Field Ethos team due to its unabashed truth-telling about all things sporting. Often the real tales of adventure are left on the editing floor and I wanted to make a change to the process. What I have found makes a true adventure is the unscripted weirdness that happens simply because you were there … such as spending a night in a Botswana jail cell or getting held at AK-point by Mexican drug smugglers. Or getting drunk on Tusker beer somewhere east of the Amboseli plains and wrestling a Masai warrior for five bucks. Final life lesson: No matter how tempting it seems, don’t wear a tux and a custom kilt while stalking stags in Scotland … the locals don’t approve.
