Three truths and a lie (in case your aren’t familiar with this game, three of the four things below are true):
- R2AK Veteran on Team TBD
- His Chesapeake Light Craft kayak was designed by the legendary John Harris during his annual ayahuasca cleanse.
- Has progressively downsized boats during his life, from keelboats to dinghies, to sailing kayaks. His reason: simplicity.
- His career in the Navy had him thrown into the middle of the Pacific with a half-inflated life raft. He lasted until the helicopter picked him up a day or so later.
Fun fact: After last year’s mid Stage 1 gale that blew more than a few teams as much as 20 miles in the wrong direction, while he plans to push through, he is bringing enough supplies to camp mid race.
