Best Accomplishment: 24 hour sup paddle fundraiser for YMCA youth shelter. Born in Washington D.C. Moved to Florida at age 8. I have always loved the water and lived if not on it ,by it. Sports have been my life since I was little. I am now a lifeguard for Sarasota county beach patrol.Grew up paddling kayaks, surf ski's, Canoes and then was introduced to Stand up paddling in 2011. I took the sport slow as in my very first race I didn’t even make it past the breakers on my Unlimited board. I train every other day to improve on every stroke I take. I plan on taking sup to another level and not only racing but using it to my advantage to teach others and give back!
