I began kayaking purely as a hobby. It started out innocently enough; renting a kayak from an outfitter and doing one-way trips in the slow moving rivers of upstate New York. Then I discovered kayaking in and around New York City and my true passion for the sport was unleashed. Kayaking in New York City has proven to be a challenging and rewarding experience. Through my infatuation with kayaking I have been able to connect with local boathouses. My involvement with these boathouses has afforded me the opportunity to connect NYC residents to their beautiful waterways while increasing awareness of the environmental challenges that face the city every day.
