I grew up going on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and all over the four corners area. Naturally growing up surrounded by rivers, canyons, and mountains my family and I would go on adventures...Boating seemed to always be the main activity, so I guess I was “doomed” to end up guiding. I started working in the warehouse for OARS when I was 16 and just fell in love with the concept of becoming a guide. So pretty soon I found myself rowing baggage boats which lead into becoming a “real river guide” the day that I turned 18. In my time off I like to play the ukulele/sing, go private boating, travel, and spend way too much money on big turquoise earrings. See ya downstream!
