Tell us a little bit about yourself

SUP outdoor enthusiasts!!! I currently reside in central Florida. When I am not working as a nurse, I am seeking outdoor adventures with my girlfriend. We can be found doing expeditions down the spring fed rivers, camping, and or mountain biking. We are usually paddling year round planning overnight expeditions. I grew up in a small beach town called Miller Beach at the southern tip of Lake Michigan in Indiana. Grew up hiking the sand dunes or body surfing the waves with my brother and neighborhood friends.

In my early twenties I moved out to Cali with my bro and got into surfing. After that paddle boarding was a no brainer. Moved back to the Midwest met friends with similar interest of kayaking / paddle boarding. That led to more outdoor activities and bigger adventures. Such as a 25-day expedition circumnavigating Lake Titicaca in South America with friends. To a 10-day expedition traveling 150 miles down Suwanee River in Florida with my girlfriend. Tons of overnight paddle camps in between and many more adventures to come. Proud to be a part of the Hala fam.
