Sweetwater Creek GA and the Ocoee River TN were my first exposure to paddling as a kid in the 1970's. Immersion into whitewater kayaking in 1987 in Butte Creek, Deer Creek, the Sacramento River and the American River, Feather River and Yuba River watersheds. Big Chico Creek, the Upper Sacramento River and the Trinity River were part of my 1990s explorations and regular runs. Raft Guiding the Cal-Salmon River, Wooley Creek and the Scott River and Klamath River.

I am a Swift Water Rescue Technician, a NOLS and Sierra Rescue International Certified WFR, a safety kayaker for the Gore Canyon Race and a contributor to AW as a Stream Keeper and member.

Protecting and preserving streams is generational leadership and conservation is more than stewardship.

As Head Guide for ABLE, Tributary, Wilderness Adventures, and Venture Quest I learned the Middle Fork American River, the upper & lower Stanislaus River and the North Fork Yuba River and kayaked Baja California.
