What’s the best part of your job?

Learning new things about the river and rafting every single day!

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

I love when Highway rapid has traffic in it at low water! I think it’s fun to maneuver around stuck boats as well as rocks.

Do you have a lucky charm or special river tradition?

Not yet!

What can you not live without while at work or on a trip?

My PFD, my helmet, and my coffee.

Fun fact, special talent or favorite guiding/trip memory.

I got to guide Tequila Slammer on the Middle Fork during guide school. It was the most exhilarating and terrifying experience in my limited training!

About me…
