Guide at a Glance
Lotus, California, United States
South Fork American
I am an adventure tour guide and outdoor tour operator. After almost 40 years of guiding, I love to share the excitement, thrills, the beauty of the rivers and canyons to folks who would not be able to see and do these adventures on their own.
I began my whitewater-rafting career as a 16-year-old high school student. My passion began after reading a grass roots publication about rafting the American rivers. I took some friends down to a river with a rented raft and was totally hooked. I started my adventure company the next summer and have been rafting ever since.
Guiding gives me the opportunity to meet many different types of folks, from families with young kids to seniors. I even began a youth outreach program that gives kids from the inner city a chance to come rafting at no cost to them.
