About me

I love food, cooking and eating, and I used to own a company bottling gourmet salsa.

The Best Part of My Job

All of it.

How I found OARS

I took a job as a photographer on the Arkansas River, and within 2 weeks, I knew that I wanted to be a guide. I quit, went through guide school, and have been doing this my whole adult life. In 2013, my good friend Cmoore recruited me to OARS.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

My favorite camp is probably Rippling Brook in the Gates of Lodore. It is just an all-around perfect camp.

Favorite River Tradition

On the Royal Gorge of the Ark, I always say hello to the river god, whose face is in the wall just above Sunshine Falls Rapid. The one time I didn't, my boat dump trucked.

I Can’t Live Without

I don't really know; I have forgotten everything once.

My Fun Fact

I've been told that I know more jokes than most people.
