David is from East Tennessee and lived just outside the Smoky Mountains National Park. He grew up surrounded by many great whitewater rivers, but only went rafting once before training as a guide. He was fortunate to travel the world, guiding all sorts of adventure activities, working on some amazing rivers and creating lifelong memories. David has been guiding since 2003 and is excited about working multi-day river trips for the first time. Spending several days on the Rogue River with a great team and fun guests will make for an amazing, unforgettable season filled with new experiences.
