Paddling Bio

Nothing makes me happier than coaching and paddling with people in ALL sorts of conditions. I have  had the opportunity to paddle and guide in the Midwest, Maine, Canada, Baja, New Zealand, Scotland, England and Wales. Next summer, (God willing and the vaccine providing) I’ll be coaching in the Shetland Islands in Scotland. Coaching for me is making use of every students’ gifts and talents and working to shape and form those gifts so that the student can paddle safely to places that they never thought they would see from a boat.
