I have been an avid paddler for the past 14 years and an instructor for the last 8 years. My love for paddling began after a kayaking trip to Lake Superior. After that trip I was hooked. I have had the privilege of learning, and coaching at events across the world in kayak and SUP. I love playing and getting people comfortable with their boat and equipment while learning to respect the sea. I have my own business called Midwest Paddlesport where I run staff and guide trainings for private business as well as the local Universities. When I’m not on the water, you will find me my office as the North American Sales Manager for Current Designs. I have a passion for the industry and the joy it brings people to be outdoors and close to nature.
