My love and passion for the water started at young age. It has led me to many adventures around the world above and below the surface of the water. Scuba diving, free diving, stand up paddleboarding, surfing, boating and fishing have been a been a large part of my life. I'm now hosting a unique water sports experience that will allow visitors to take in some of the amazing sites of where I call home. My co-host for this experience is Justin, a Florida native, and very knowledgable about the regions waterways. He has previous experience instructing guests on our specialty boards. For the 2020 season we will be joined by another co-host named Julia. Her outdoor experience in the forest and on the water, environmental education and great personality will be a great addition to hosting this experience.
