Where did you grow up?
Where do you call home now?
Year started at OARS?
What’s the best part of your job?
It is different everyday! Every trip down the river and every guest is unique. I am always learning something new.
Tell us about your favorite rapid, hike or camp and what makes it special
Haystack Rapids on the Middle Fork of the Salmon. They aren’t flashy or famous but it was the first class III I rowed as a teenager.
Do you have a lucky charm or special river tradition?
I always take a quiet moment away from the group to brush my teeth and say thanks to the river.
What can you not live without on a trip?
Dry shorts and hand cream!
