The journey begins again!

The gift of long distance paddling, the memories from years of training, new friends and experiences, all started in New York City. Six years ago, I entered my first long distance paddleboard race, The SEA Paddle NYC and fell in love. From there, this sport has given me a lifetime of memories and the greatest gift of all - the ability to give to those who need.

With great excitement, I will be tackling this 25 mile course for a second time, circumventing Manhattan. Since inception, SEA Paddle NYC has raised 3.1 Million dollars toward environmental preservation and a number of non-profit autism organizations. With your help we will continue to clean our oceans of toxic plastics and work with children in need.

As always, I thank you whole heartedly for supporting my greatest passion. Without you, I could not become the best me!

Paddle On,
