When did you start kayaking?
I started kayaking in 1989 when I was 10 years old.
What is your claim to fame?
I'm not sure if this is a positive claim to fame, but I was arrested for kayaking a section of my local river. Apparently I was trespassing by being on the river. I was never prosecuted as after a little gentle persuasion all charges were dropped.I've also been interviewed for Canadian TV whilst having a surfing lesson, they were doing a feature on why tourists should come to Montreal to river surf. Obviously its all the really hot girls in bikinis...
What is your preferred style of kayaking?
I'm a river boater, you can't beat the buzz you get from running difficult rapids and drops and hitting must make lines.
Your favorite boat of all time?
It has to be the Disco, I did everything in that boat, well nearly everything...
Your current favorite boat?
MY Mafia, I have paddled mine so much now I am beginning to develop an emotional connection with her...
Why do you paddle a Dragorossi?
The stripes, you gotta love the stripes! I also want to be having more fun than everybody else when I get on the water, no matter what sort of kayaking I'm doing.
What would you like to do, that you have not had the chance to do yet? There are still so many things I would like to do. For starters, I want to kayak in Nepal, New Zealand, Central and South America and go back and find more first descents in Madagascar, I would also like to have the opportunity to provide input and feedback on new DragoRossi designs. I'm giving up "real" work in September 2009, so hoping to be able to tick off a few of these then. Outside of kayaking, I'd like to try skydiving and learn to snowboard.
