    Promoted to Lieutenant Commander of the Conch Republic Navy in 2011. I've flown close to a million miles (no joke) all over this planet. Seem to be into Indy music lately, but I'll always have a soft spot for Less Than Jake. I dabble in web design and movie making. I know more about Airborne Lidar Bathymetry than most people the planet, but my old company didn't see the value in that. And I'm an all-around awesome guy. You're welcome.

    His Boat - CRN Halcyon: a blue-green fiberglass Current Designs 'Extreme' - stealth auxiliary vessel of the Conch Repubic Navy, Flotilla of the Northern Territories. And I can't live without my full carbon Werner 'Kaliste' paddle. Everything else is a lead pipe!

    FOOD, Skip the Serpent, waterproof video camera(s), camo boonie, deck bag full of goodies.
  • How did you get involved with the CAC?:

    My sister fought and beat cancer in 2002. You will never appreciate the fear until it happens to you. I've known Patrick since birth and he always talked about 'the kayak trip'. I knew I had to help stop the madness.
  • In his own words:

    "I'm incredibly proud to be a part of this group. You really should do this at least once.. It will change your life."
