I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio moved to Florida when I was 10 and made home Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island. I learned to surf on the island and became hooked by the sea and it’s waves. I started with a shortboard and after several years as a pro/am I fell into the challenge of stand up paddling.
It took over my interests and shortly after I moved to CA to pursue a full career in the ocean as an athlete -hoping it would transpire. It did, fortunately. I was passionate about the challenge of standing on a SUP at the beginning and still I find passion in the ever progression of my stand up paddle surfing and now hydrofoiling. I’m intrigued in personal performance and how to best improve and fancy helping other people improve as well.
