Where did you start with paddling? I started paddling in 2007 on the Kaituna River

Why are you doing this sport? I paddle for the pure love and passion I have for this sport.The adrenaline rush, the challenge.

The most favorite course: This is a hard one there are many good ones out there. Little White Salmon, Big Bannana Alseseca, Nevados Chile

Your best experience on water: When I am with a good group of my friends on any epic river around the world

Goals and planns for future:  Try and stay injury free.Push my limits. Travel to more unexplored places/rivers around the world. Would like to get more into the expedition side of things.

What you like to do when you are not in kayak: moutain bike, run anything you can get a good rush out of, I like to give all kinds of sports ago!!
