For Jason having a passion for paddling is an understatement, as an enthusiastic paddler that never passes on a chance to discuss everything about kayaking .
He accelerated his paddlesport career by becoming a Certified Instructor by the American Canoe Association (ACA) in Coastal Sea Kayaking disciplines with an Adaptive Paddling Endorsement, teaches SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding), is an Indiana Master Naturalist and Wilderness First Aid Certified.
He loves spending time on the water in a kayak or on a SUP, leading tours and teaching.
Jason develops innovative programs, clinics and instructional programs for groups and individuals, with a diversity of styles, techniques and philosophical approaches.
He served as the Race Director for the Fall Fling Paddlesport Races at Geist Lake and when outside of Indiana, he enjoys Sea Kayaking in Southwest Florida, the Everglades, the Florida Keys and the Great Lakes.
When not kayaking, Jason enjoys cycling, running, cross-country skiing and rehabbing distressed houses.
“As kayaking is a major part of my life, it makes sense to pay it forward to others and enjoy seeing people challenge their fears and gain a positive experience on the water.”
