Do you agree to wear your life jacket on all meetup paddles? This must be answered affirmatively to be accepted in the HRK.


How long have you been paddling?

I've been canoeing since an early age, but kayaking I started the summer of 09. I earned my BCU 3 Star open water certification in early 2012, and received BCU 4 Star leadership training in 2015.

What kind and size of kayak(s) do you Have?

P&H Cetus 178 MV, Wilderness Systems Tempest 165, Wilderness Systems Zephyr 160, Wilderness Systems Pamlico (tandem)

What types of paddle events are you hoping for from this organization?

I hope to organize mid week after work trips, and point to point trips on the weekends whenever I can.

Do you know how to dress for paddling in cold weather?

Yes, and I do!


I joined the group to meet good people, paddle new places and improve my skills. Paddling really clears my head!
