Favourite quotes: “I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms”, Henry David Thoreau.
Carolina Cup 2021 “I recently came 8th (and even led the pack for a significant part) in the Carolina CUP SUP race in NC which is one of the largest SUP races in the world, to rub shoulders with the best was very humbling and has shown me what I need to work on to become the best.”

Personal summary: I grew up on the beach and just live to get In the water whether that Is SUPing, surfing, ski paddling, spearfishing or anything else!
