What’s the best part of your job?
Inspiring people to go outdoors and make memories with their friends & family.
Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special
Tate Creek on the Rogue River. You hike to an awesome natural waterslide, but the slide is no joke. Definitely an adventure.
What can you not live without on a trip?
Fun fact, special talent or favorite guiding memory
Always remembering the one piece of camping gear everyone else forgot.
My first OARS trip was on the Tuolumne River in 2009, and everything about the experience from the whitewater to the food blew me away. Afterward, I decided that working for an outdoor company like OARS would be my dream job and I put it out into the universe. I’d say it worked out well.
