About me

Working for OARS quiets my itch to get out on the river. Though, I also enjoy rock climbing, woodworking, and spending lots of money to fix my truck...SIKE. Oh, and I can't forget long walks with my dog.

The Best Part of My Job

All the connections I make with folks from around the world.

How I found OARS

I quit my job in Oregon to raft the Grand Canyon and came off the trip with nowhere to go. So, I applied for OARS, and they adopted me!

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

My favorite stretch of river is Westwater Canyon. Lots of fun action pact rapids, yet it's short and sweet. It reminds me a lot of the Grand Canyon.

My Favorite Trip Memory

Flipping in Big Drop 2 on Cataract Canyon.

Favorite River Tradition

When I get nervous, I sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to help calm my nerves.

I Can’t Live Without

In the office: my dog. On a trip: my kite.
