About me

I’m a writer, musician, mountain biker, and an avid reader! I’m currently pursuing a master's degree in creative nonfiction writing at the University of Montana!

The Best Part of My Job

The best part of my job is sharing with others what makes a river trip so special. And sleeping outside most nights!

How I found OARS

I went on my first river trip when I was 16, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

I Can’t Live Without

My journal (and a couple books)!

My Fun Fact

I love singing songs around the campfire 🙂
