I have lived in the Hartville/Phillipsburg, Missouri area all my life.  In our free time, my wife, Tina, and I enjoy spending time together at our camper on the lake or with our 4 children and 6 grandchildren.  I also love to fish and hunt every chance I get.  God has given us a way to make a living in the fishing industry, so Outlaw Crappie Poles is a dream come true!  Together, with our amazing team, our mission is to be profitable, honor God and be a blessing to anglers and their families all over the world.

Owner, Website Administrator, Advertising

I've lived in Missouri and Oklahoma all my life.   I love my day job as Technical Support Specialist for Dallas County Schools in Buffalo because I love helping people, I love children and I get to make a difference every single day.  My passion is photography, I love camping, the sun and water, especially the beach, and all my free time is spent with my husband, John and our family.  My role with Outlaw Crappie Poles is to manage all technical aspects of running the business, as well as marketing and advertising.

I grew up in the Marshfield, Missouri area and now live in Mount Vernon with my lovely wife of 30 years Melissa Livingston. I have two boys and one granddaughter.  I have been crappie fishing for 20 plus years.  Been fishing tournaments for five years, on Outlaw Crappie Poles Pro Staff for three years and have been Sales Manager and Pro Staff Manager for the last two.  I like fishing, camping and spending time with my wife, kids and granddaughter.  I am looking forward to growing the Outlaw brand.

I have lived in the Aurora/Marshfield, Missouri area all my life.  I love spending time with my family, camping, fishing, reading and being a grandma.  Amos and I have been married for 30 years and he has sold Outlaws for the past four years.  During those four years, I have seen how great of a product Outlaw Crappie Poles are, so I am very excited to be part of the team and help the business grow.
