What’s the best part of your job?

I get to work in some of the most beautiful desert canyons in the world. And I get to share my love for the special places with so many others.

Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special

Rippling Brook. I have so many vivid, incredible memories there. Guitar sessions around the fire at night. Watching osprey fish in the morning. Every visit there is memorable

What can you not live without on a trip?

As long as I’ve got a PFD and a coffee vessel, life is good.
