I’m not kidding around anymore, I’m just in need of a river, a boat and a camera, or at least that’s what my inner voices say. I’ve found new avenues for creativity no less than every year of my life, but I can always be found boating wherever I can, as it is my primary reason for living. While “growing up”, I dabbled at playboating, but that doesn’t mean I can’t throw a blunt too! My favorite place to explore is eastern Tibet, Yunnan and Sichuan, but I also love living in the Columbia Gorge.

Why do you paddle?
I never feel as connected to the earth or to other people as I do when I am paddling on a river, dancing with the currents, moving at the pace of reality.
