Meet the Team


Founder / CEO

Drew grew up in Klamath Falls, Oregon and later moved to Idaho where he graduated from Boise State University with a degree in Business Finance. He held numerous automotive mechanic and fleet management jobs over the years, while always having a passion for shooting and the outdoors as his hobbies. In 2017 Drew began applying his engineering mindset to the shortcomings he saw in production hunting rifles, which lead to creating and patenting his own bolt action rifle designs which are now the foundation for success at AllTerra. His original idea was to modify existing rifles to include his technology, but over time it became clear that in order to do it right, he had to design and build his own entire rifle around his concepts. Drew’s brand was originally named Axial Precision before rebranding as AllTerra Arms in 2019. Drew is in the shop every day, working with everyone on the team in all facets of the business. His true passion lies in product design and the process of seeing functionally sound engineering concepts come to life.

He also guides for Dall Sheep in remote Alaska each season. Todd thoroughly enjoys doing everything he can to ensure unmatched product quality and customer experience at AllTerra. Outside of work, he has two young boys to whom he’s currently passing on the hunting and outdoor tradition.

An Idaho native, Matt grew up hunting with his dad from a very young age. He acquired a passion for music early in his childhood which he still exercises to this day as a drummer in various local gig bands. He’s also the shop DJ here at AllTerra.

Cerakote Artist & Stock Production

After growing up in South Carolina and working as a detailed sign maker, Drayton and his wife picked up and moved to Idaho to open a church in 2019. Drayton’s southern charm and outdoor passions for waterfowl hunting and training bird dogs connected him with the AllTerra team in a roundabout way. With AllTerra’s need for a dedicated Cerakote artist and Drayton’s detail-oriented background in sign making, a match was made. In addition to Cerakote, Drayton now handles the majority of our stock production needs. He’s a versatile team player who has a positive attitude 100% of the time, even while performing the dirtiest work in the shop.
