TUG – Raft Guide

Life slogan: Life is not a dress rehearsal. 

I boat: because I can.

I listen to: the voices in my head.

I eat: whatever is in front of me.

Guilty pleasure: Guilt, what is that? 

I prefer: The Gauley River at ANY level over the New River. But I won’t kick either “outta bed.”

I would bring: my “A” game, if I knew what that was…

Coolest thing I’ve done: Backpacking in Alaska, snowboarding big mountains in Utah, and running the Lower Gauley at 20,000 cfs.

I drink: in the morning, ’cause you can’t drink all day unless you start in the morning…hic… 

Party trick: Being coherent under…let’s just say adverse conditions.

All time dream: Getting to heaven so I can be on a non-stop Class IV river; where the only time we take a break is to put on a snowboard and run steep, waist-deep, powder-filled chutes straight back into the boat.

Favorite thing about ACE: No question about it; the people I work with day in and day out. We are not elitists, we’re just better!
