- How you got into the sport: I was born into a big paddling family; both my parents did a bunch of sprint racing back in the 80s. Growing up on the coast, I did water sports from birth, and my parents lured me into a surfski with ease in high school. After I graduated college, I decided I had to try out this sprint, flatwater game. I’ve been hooked on sprint racing ever since!
- Hobbies: Surfski, painting, pottery, travel, reading
- Role Model: My parents. They’re the whole reason I’ve gotten to where I am today.
