I’m originally from the central gulf coast of Florida, spending most of my childhood in, on, or near the ocean. I moved to West Maui in 2010 to pursue my interests and passions in the ocean, which is where I was first introduced to paddling. Since 2013, I have been competing professionally in Standup Paddle-Board (SUP) races and SUP surf competitions all around the world.
