Outdoor Emergency Care Technician
How long have you worked in the Outdoor Industry?
I have worked in the outdoor industry for five years as a ski patroller for Sunday River and a Three Rivers guide!
What is your origin story working for Three Rivers Whitewater?
At 23, I quit my job working for a hedge fund and moved to Maine seeking a better lifestyle. I had my winter job at Sunday River lined up, and was lost for summer work. Many of my co-workers recommended becoming a river guide. I had no river experience, and was very apprehensive. Five years later, I’m proud of how far I’ve come.
What do you love most about being a Maine River Guide?
My favorite part about being a river guide is showing people a fun and safe time down Maine’s astonishingly beautiful wilderness. I love getting out for a day and sharing the stoke!
What is your favorite rapid to guide in Maine?
I love Mile-Long-Rapid on the Dead River. The long rapid offers many features to run or to avoid, allowing for creativity in route selection, and finishes with one of the best hits on the river!
What is your favorite hike in Maine?
My favorite hike in Maine is Katahdin, specifically the Cathedral and Knife Edge trails. After hiking every high peak this side of the Hudson River, I can confidently say these are the most spectacular trails in New England!
What do you enjoy doing when not working?
I am the two time, back to back, heavyweight, undisputed, world champion ping-pong player of The Forks.
Favorite experience on the river?
Any time I get to take a group of people who are genuinely nervous and scared about running the river, especially the Class IV rapids, and watching their fear disappear into excitement and smiles!
