QUOTE:
“I had kidney failure in 2001. I should have been dead. I was fortunate to receive a kidney transplant. After, I searched for meaning and purpose in life. Once I started standup, I knew I’d found my path. I live for being on the water whether it’s through endurance racing or paddling with friends. Most of all, I love sharing my sport with others.”
