About me

Born and raised in London, the River Thames doesn't have any "bumps"!

The Best Part of My Job

Pushing off of shore with a new crew each day and hearing the "whoops" of excitement for the adventure to come.

How I found OARS

Went for a one-day on the Tuolomne, asked my guide how I could become a guide...joined a guide school and was fortunate to be asked to join the team. Took me 30 years in corporate America to discover the best job in the world was a LONG, LONG way from any office.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

Bouncing Rock never disappoints!

I Can’t Live Without

Never forget my chapstick! No "lippy" makes for a bad day!

My Fun Fact

Ski guide in the winter; every new snow just gets me more pumped for the spring melt and whitewater to come!
