About me

Life is about quality experiences and the people you share them with. This is the reason I love working in the rafting industry, to meet people form all walks of life. To share, enjoy, and complete journeys together in beautiful surroundings, I like to call my office. When I am not working in the summer as a guide, I am usually home enjoying the river and mountains with my life partner Lila, and our amazing son Paulo.

The Best Part of My Job

Sharing experiences with amazing people from different walks of life that I would have otherwise never meet in this lifetime.

How I found OARS

Curt Chang took a chance on a lost young adult who he saw potential in, and 15 years later I'm still working with OARS. Being a part of the Idaho OARS family has helped and motivated me to become the person and family man I am today.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

My favorite rapid is the one in front of me, and hopefully it's big!

My Favorite Trip Memory

Just being present in the moment is always important and special when on the river.

I Can’t Live Without

Awesome work colleagues!

My Fun Fact

I love big rapids and going big in those rapids!
