About me

I’m passionate about getting and sharing access to rivers.

The Best Part of My Job

Getting access to the rivers, places, and people.

How I found OARS

A series of fortunate events led me to OARS.

My Favorite Spot on the River/Outdoors

My favorite rapids would have to be the Big Drops. Just an incredibly powerful stretch of water. My favorite camp has to be Oljeto Camp, river left on the San Juan. It’s special because it’s on the rez I’m from and it’s an awesome camp.

I Can’t Live Without

Sunglasses.

My Fun Fact

Fun fact- Lake Powell hits dead pool level at 3,374 feet.
