Professional River Guide
With OARS Since
Movement makes me happy. No matter where I’m at or what I’m doing for a season, I’ve got to be able to use my body and play outside! I love to surf, mountain bike, hunt, and fish.
The Best Part of My Job
Getting to share an adventure with people from all walks of life.
How I found OARS
It was such an easy decision to become a guide, because helping folks get on the water brings me more joy and contentment than anything else.
My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors
Comb Ridge on the San Juan. It’s a treasure trove of archaeological sites if you’re willing to navigate the hot stinkin’ desert mid summer.
My Lucky Charm
A bead from Shocklee, and a small fox figurine my brother got me in France when I was 5.
I Can’t Live Without
My Fun Fact
I worked in fisheries for a number of years and have had lots of up-close and personal encounters with all the endangered fish species in the Upper Colorado River Basin.
