About Me:

At 30 years of age, I suppose I am a member of the "old guard" in this sport.  That happened fast!  Over the past 14 years of my career, I have been fortunate to compete in Freestyle World Championships, win extreme races across the planet, run 90 foot waterfalls, speak and write to large audiences, and make a full-time living as a whitewater kayaker.  It's been a heck of a ride!
