Where did you grow up?
Where do you call home now?
Year started at OARS?
What’s the best part of your job?
Shared excitement of the river; everyone can have fun together in an amazing environment.
Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special
The hike/swim/boulder-scramble up the Big Sur River Gorge is a fantastic summer excursion. When the weather is nice the first big pool gets a bit crowded, but the more curious and capable can navigate farther upstream to secluded sun-soaked pools and beautiful surroundings.
What can you not live without on a trip?
Adequately appropriate apparel.
Fun fact, special talent or favorite guiding memory
I like to tie knots.
