Guide Bio

Jason has been guiding since 1991. He learned to paddle on the McKenzie and Willamette rivers outside of his hometown in Eugene, Oregon. He competed in both slalom and freestyle kayak rodeo from 1996-2001 and first started teaching in 1994.

Jason is the Head of Instruction, White Water programs at Current Adventures. A kayaking guide and instructor, you are in good hands with Jason. He enjoys the challenge of trying to figure out how to best reach people and believes it is all about finding the right moment, to say the right things, the right way; and sometimes knowing when NOT to say something (even important things). He knows everyone is different, requiring a different approach, timing, and sometimes language.
