Professional River Guide
With OARS Since
I enjoy most things water related.
The Best Part of My Job
Shared excitement of the river and fostering the stoke.
How I found OARS
The river called unto me.
My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors
The hike/swim/boulder-scramble up the Big Sur River Gorge is a fantastic summer excursion. When the weather is nice, the first big pool gets a bit crowded, but the more curious and capable can navigate farther upstream to secluded sun-soaked pools and beautiful surroundings.
Favorite River Tradition
Splashing a little water on my face and the back of my neck before the big rapids helps me get in the zone.
I Can’t Live Without
A big bottle of water.
My Fun Fact
I tie a pretty quick bowline.
