Where do you call home now?
Year started at OARS?

Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special
Lava Falls! In 2012, about ten minutes after rowing Lava Falls, a company approached me and asked if I would run 32-foot 2-man sweep boats in Jackson, WY on the beautiful snake river. It changed my life!
Do you have a lucky charm or special river tradition?
Peanut M&M’s on top of a big rapid. Also giving me a massage will bring you good luck.
What can you not live without on a trip?
Fun fact, special talent or favorite guiding memory
I’ll never forget the river stories of Roger Dale and Steve Kenney. I’m so grateful to have had the chance to row a boat through the Grand Canyon with some of the best boaters I’ve ever met.
