Competition ranking you’re most proud of:

I’ve podium’d at the Missoula SUP cup and ranked well at a few other regional events, but what i’m most proud of isn’t race ranking, it’s improving upon my own performance and skills, year to year, and being able to share that with others and have a positive impact on their experience of SUP, sharing the stoke!

Your favourite contest and why:

The Gorge and Battle of the Paddle, because of the awesome community vibe.

Your favourite SUP adventure:

Winter paddling and camping on the North Fork of the Flathead here, near Polebridge, MT.

Number one on your bucket list:

Hard to pick just one… anything tropical would be nice for a change, instead of winter SUP! ha ha or an eco-adventure with our friend, Gabe Gray would be rad.

Influential SUP moments:

Training with Dave Kalama and Brody Welte at Kalama Kamp at the Gorge. Jimmy Terrell clinics as BOP. ACA, WPA and Paddlefit instruction/certification in WA, then bringing it home to share on a local level.

If you could have only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Marshmallow fluff.

If you could be a character from a movie, who would you be?

Eric Draven from The Crow, a supernatural avenger!
