What is your most rewarding experience while guiding? Teaching the YMCA kids how to boat. Seeing them go from being scared of the river to having the desire to play in features was very rewarding.
Your most epic day? I took a three day trip down the Devils River. Each day on this river, the most pristine/remote river in Texas, was epic in its own way.

Favorite day off activity: Finding some live music in Austin.
Favorite whitewater run: Browns Canyon
Favorite thing after the river: Hanging out with friends, it helps me unwind.
