Ashton is an American outdoorsman and amateur artist who lives a dual life working on the river and at a charitable foundation. Born in Oakland and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Ashton has always felt a connection with rivers, chasing whitewater across California, New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. Now calling White Salmon home, he’s excited to join the Wet Planet team and work alongside the best guides in town, on the most beautiful rivers in the country.
Besides being on the river, Ashton enjoys seeking out natural hot springs, painting, backpacking, and playing guitar in Seattle-based band The Mayonnaise. In other phases of life, Ashton has been a fine dining cook, an Alaskan tour guide, and a grant writer for local nonprofits.
