I always wanted to be a surfer but living in Colorado it was a little bit of a challenge. When I was 12 my Dad gave me a body board and told me to play in the river by his house. I saw kayaker surfing little river waves and it clicked. If they can surf in the river so can I! After standing on my first river wave, I started to pioneer the scene in Colorado. Soon after seeing sup, I naturally transitioned. Sup opened up a whole new world. I could surf smaller waves, paddle down river in search of new waves and I could also paddle for fitness. I helped start the racing scene on the front range in Colorado and soon became one of Colorado's fastest paddlers. People always ask when events I want to be known for. I would say spreading the stoke and Aloha of the sport is more important to me than any race or title. I want to be known for how much I love the sport and how much fun I have on a board, racing, surfing, down river or just paddling for fitness and doing yoga poses. I just love to have fun on the water!
