Guide For: Grand Canyon, Idaho
Hometown: Jensen, Utah
Favorite Food: Can't beat Mexican!
Favorite Music: Bluegrass (surprised?)
Favorite thing about working for O.A.R.S.: Sharing my passions with others who would otherwise not experience the beauty of the great outdoors.
Greatest Memory: Due to an unfortunate series of events, I was able to hike in at Soap Creek to row a dory through the Grand Canyon. It was an OARS trip, so I was in the only dory, and it was my first paid trip! We took out on my birthday, and while floating in the calm water below 224, Billie Prosser congratulated me on having a "Golden" trip and the whole crew sang "Happy Birthday". It was the greatest take-out day of my career.
Other Hobbies: I spend most of my time on the water. I travel to South/Central America occasionally for the "other" season. Otherwise, I have become a world-class ski bum in Crested Butte, CO!
Special Talents: Nope, but I make a mean DO lasagna
Time with O.A.R.S.: Since 2003 at the age of 17
