What’s your favorite rapid and what makes it special?

Rock Slide on the Rio Grande. It was the first class III rapid that I ever flipped a canoe in and swam. Luckily,  there were Oreos and friends waiting for me just downstream!

Why do you love working for Mother Lode?

I love working for a company that actively values the environment and people! Really, I love getting people outdoors, getting kids stoked on ecology, and having great mentors to help me do these things better.

What’s one of your favorite adventures?

Canoeing the Rio Grande through Big Bend’s Santa Elena Canyon
