Professional Outdoor Guides & Adventure Experts
Where did you grow up?
Where do you call home now?
Year started at OARS?
What’s the best part of your job?
Meeting & getting to know the adventurous folks who join our trips. And exploring Grand Canyon.
Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special
Favorite rapid: Hermit. Love the huge wave train! But really it is hard to have a favorite. Every trip is different and that’s really what I love about the canyon/river environment.
Do you have a lucky charm or special river tradition?
Respect for the river & canyon.
What can you not live without on a trip?
A comfy pad to sleep on. Sunglasses, canyon hat, and dry shoes for camp.
Fun fact, special talent or favorite guiding memory
When not in the Grand Canyon, I ski patrol and serve the sick and injured as a Paramedic.
As for guiding memories I tend to tell those stories as we go down stream, and are below the features in the stories.
