ehportraitHometown: Asheville, NC

Favourite river: Rocky Broad River near Bat Cave, NC.

Boat of choice: Esquif Spanish Fly, although I love the Spark when I feel the need for speed.

My most memorable canoeing experience: I was about 10 years old. My family took a canoeing trip on the Shenandoah River in VA when a huge storm came up. I have a fond memory of hanging out on shore under the canoes with my grandparents, parents, and sisters as we waited for the lightning storm to pass over. Winning the world canoeing title was pretty sweet as well…
