When did you first start paddling?
July 2013 with Billy Lush in Knoxville, TN. I was hooked on the sport immediately.
Why do you love Paddle Boarding?
I love paddle boarding because it is a sport where only my determination and effort decides how i perform. It is a race for my personal best. Plus the ability to be alone on the water gives me a peace and a place alone to think.
What other sports do you like?
I enjoy playing basketball at my high school during the winter and pickup soccer and football with friends. Basically anything outdoors.
Any other hobbies?
Hiking in the Great Smokey Mountains, longboarding & skateboarding, travelling, photography, art, and listening to tons of music.
