I started kayaking when I was 11 in 2013. At first kayaking was all about being with my friends on the water, and learning new skills and tricks. As I got better I realized that I needed to improve my paddling technique if I was going to get better and paddle more technical rivers. That is when I started to paddle Slalom. My passion is paddling creeks, and being in the wilderness with my friends, but there is also something exhilarating in challenging yourself to become a better paddler on a slalom course. Paddling is my passion, and it is my intention to take paddling to the highest levels I can whether it be on a creek, on a wave, or in a race.
