My first time on the water I was 2 months old. At the end of high school I attended World Class Kayak Academy and my passion exploded from there. In the past few years I have been focusing on expedition kayaking more than the competition scene. This sport has taken me all over the world, but currently I am finishing school in Santa Cruz, CA. I am the main contributor for Shasta Boyz Productions and making videos is the best way to share our adventures. See you on the water.

Even more than that, it is the journeys in the mountains that keep me coming back. Hiking with friends, and the adventures and challenges that are associated with finding a new place to fly are the biggest allures for me.
