Houston Management Team:
My passion for the outdoors has taken me from Houston to Colorado where I spent every free moment snowboarding, mountain biking and trail running Garden of the Gods. I also found a deep love for white water kayaker and rafting the Colorado River. From there I set my sights on Huntington Beach, Ca and found a new love in sea kayaking and serious off roading. My friends and I spent all our free time planning our next adventure until mine was decided for me as my then fiance told me we were having our first child! We moved back to Houston in December 2010 and now have 2 little surprises. I have always tried to work somewhere that shared the same passion for the outdoors and enjoying what you do and am very excited to join the Austin Canoe & Kayak family. I pride myself on providing great customer service, having a positive impact on those around me and representing a brand that shares my passion for the outdoors.
I grew up on a farm in South Texas for most of my life and that’s where I learned to hunt and fish. When I was young, the banks and wades of the lower Laguna Madre around South Padre Island is where I did most of my fishing. That was until I got in a kayak for the first time and never looked back. I now use my kayak for inshore, offshore, freshwater, saltwater and the occasional duck hunt. When i’m not kayaking, I enjoy stand up paddle boarding the flats, exploring back country roads, going to the shooting range and watching races at the drag strip.

Do you ever wonder what it’s like to use a high-end paddle or thinking about buying one but can’t seem to take the next step? Rent one! All ACK stores now rent high-end paddles. It’s a great way to get a feel for what it’s like but be warned, you’ll never want to go back to using your old paddle. Ask any ACK associate for details.
