What is your favorite paddling spot?

Wherever there’s downwind. My favorite race has got to be Kula Anela (around Angel island).

Why did you decide to participate in the Bay for Breath Crossing?

I wanted to honor my Aunt Judy who battled cystic fibrosis until she was 51. She was always full of life, no matter the obstacles she was facing, and could always be heard laughing with the family. I’ll never forget her laugh. It always brings a smile to my face.

Do you have a personal connection to Cystic Fibrosis or The Living Breath Foundation?

As I said, I wanted to honor my Aunt Judy. I’m sorta good at paddling and this is a way that I can put that skill to good use and connect with the family around it.
