A New Jersey native, Jake has lead trips and safety kayaked on South Carolina’s Chattooga River, guided rafts on the Deerfield in Massachusetts, and has rowed multi-day trips on the Rio Grande along the Texas-Mexico border. His adventures have landed him on a raft floating the Main Salmon River, splashing through the depths of the Grand Canyon on the Colorado, and canoeing through the remote lower canyons of the Rio Grande. Using a raft and river gorge as his classroom, Jake believes that by floating rivers and learning about their unique natural and cultural histories, we can learn a lot about ourselves and the world we live in. In the rare moments that he finds himself off the river, Jake dedicates himself to the pursuit of a good story as an avid reader, audiophile, and podcast producer.
