I am a retired US Marine aviator with over 30 years of service. I grew up in Sydney, Australia and spent my teen years competitively sailing and surfing in various Sydney venues. Equipped with the (then) latest in kayak technology, I expanded my kayaking into light white water with visits to the Kangaroo Valley River, New South Wales (NSW), kayak surfing on Sydney beaches, and coastal kayaking throughout the harbor. As a native bush walker, I participated in the Duke of Edinburgh Awards in eastern NSW. I have been an enthusiastic backpacker ever since and even backpacked through NSW again in 2016.
I have been an avid coastal and light white water kayaker in the South/North Carolina and Virginia regions since 1996. I paddled on the Great Lakes, and several smaller lakes in northern Minnesota. I look forward to working with my clients on basic sea kayaking and touring techniques. There is nothing better than a long day on the water paddling and enjoying the views! I look forward to showing you great local areas where only kayakers can go!
