What is the best part of the job?

Getting paid to do something I enjoy, it’s crazy right?

Why do you think people should go on a rafting trip?

To enjoy the outdoors and the company you find yourself.

Why would I want you as a guide?

I’m adverse in my trips, tell me what kind of trip you want and you will get it.

How long and Why/How did you start working at Ocoee Inn Rafting?

9 seasons under my belt, I started working here because of my friend Sam who is also a guide.

What are some crazy/adventurous things you’ve done?

Skydiving in Hawaii was pretty awesome, also enjoyed scuba diving as well. Let’s be honest every time I guide down the river it’s adventurous.

What do you love about Ocoee Inn Rafting?

Family orientation of the outfitter. Side note I seriously enjoy having professional co-workers.

What makes you unique as a guide and why would I request you?

Nothing I could say will make you pick me, but if you have that gut feeling like this was meant to be, just go with it.

Where did you grow up? If not not locally, what brought you here?

Mostly local, I have moved around a bit on the east coast.

What does your off season look like?

Blue lights and sirens…Now you get to wonder if I’m driving the car or riding in it.

What are your hobbies?

I’m a video gamer, aside from that I enjoy playing paintball and I consider rafting a hobby in itself.

What/Who inspires you?

Any Nascar driver that decides to turn right, they are seriously going places.
