I am an outdoor adventurer, writer, wood boat builder, river runner, fly fishing guide, Oregon outfitter and special-interest speaker on Outdoor Life, National Parks, River Running, Extreme Adventures, Wilderness Experiences, Management, Leadership, Problem-Solving and Teamwork.

 Each presentation is unique and hand-crafted - tailored to add maximum value and exceed the expectations of any group or event.  By combining high resolution pictures with high definition video from some of the most beautiful settings and challenging outdoor situations in North America, each member of the audience can experience the thrill of river running, the serenity of nature, the solitude of sleeping under the stars, and the terror of flipping a boat on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.

  My presentations are all based on our adventures and the articles I have written for some of the most respected and widely circulated publications in the Outdoor Industry like Overland Journal, WoodenBoat Magazine, Gray's Sporting Journal, Small Boat, Salmon Steelhead Journal and many others.  In every adventure and outdoor experience there are problems to solve, risks to evaluate, obstacles to overcome, teams to manage, leadership challenges to rise up to, and sometimes there is even a disaster or two to deal with. 

 All of these outdoor experiences are woven together in a "storytelling style" of presentation that is entertaining, historical and educational.

  There are many parallels between outdoor adventures and challenges we face in business and life on a daily basis.  When connecting those dots and applying those lessons I draw from a 25 year career in senior leadership as a retailer and a supplier in consumer products and from my own successful consulting practice where I specialize in branding and launching new products.

I have been the keynote speaker at leadership conferences, wood boat festivals, private and public consumer products companies, and gatherings and groups of all types. Consistently, I am evaluated as one of the top-rated speakers and I would be happy to supply references and results.
