What’s your favorite spot to paddle in B’More?

Inner Harbor and around Fort McHenry.

What’s Your Motto In Life?

Dream big, follow your passion and never give up! I love this quote by Nelson Mandela: “There is no passion to be found playing small — in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

Why B’More?

B’more will always be home. It is where I was born and raised and it is where I will raise a family. As much as I love to travel the world and explore new places, I love the sense of community, the seasons, our ability to be at the beach or in the mountains in less than 3 hours and I love that my family lives here!

Who or What Inspires You?

My mom- she is the most giving and self-less person I have ever met. The beach also inspires me…when I am there I feel full of life, I take time to enjoy every sunrise and every sunset.

In 2016 I commit to Be More….

Present.

What’s your favorite spot to paddle in B’More?

By far the inner harbor…when you are out there surrounded by the city you love it is a magical thing. To see Baltimore from the water is beyond beautiful and to be some of the first few fearless folks to SUP B’More is pretty amazing!

Live passionately…

I love B’More because it was where I was born, where I feel most real, and can be most me. The people are genuine and passionate. The community has heart.
