Anywhere there’s water!
Why do you coach?
I love being able to share my passion for kayaking with others. Getting paid to do it is just a bonus!
Why do you love kayaking?
It’s an infinite challenge, which takes me all over the world with friends. Whether playboating, squirt boating, creeking, river running, instructing, or competing, I just love to be on the water in a boat.

I can grow facial hair on command. I eat no green vegetables of any kind–ever!
