How Long have you Been on the River?
When I was a kid I was always fascinated by aquatic environments. I was especially fond of fish. Around age 12 I started fly fishing and from then on my river time increased. Later, I found a new way to enjoy rivers through whitewater rafting. I now have eight years of experience guiding whitewater. 7 of those years are experience guiding the White Salmon.
How did you get into raft guiding?
I graduated college and started working 40 hours a week. After that experience, I decided that work should be more enjoyable. Rafting is way more fun!
Do you have any Hobbies & Interests you would like to share?
My favorite color is Orange. I’m a science nerd! I’m interested in how stuff works. I guess that makes me a Biochem nerd! I love to laugh and long walks on the beach.
Why do you Enjoy Rafting & What keeps you Coming Back?
Its all about energy transfer. Whitewater rafting is a highly enjoyable experience.
Any accomplishments, on or off the River?
I recently rafted the Grand Canyon for the first time!
