Growing up on the tropical island of Cebu in the Philippines, I loved the proximity of the ocean and playing in it, which explains my passion for sea kayaking. Everything about the sport fascinates me: surfing, rock gardening, expedition-style trips.  I now call sunny Southern California home, and its local coasts my playground. Paddling across to the local Channel Islands, and camping there, counts as a personal favorite. Some of my adventures have taken me to British Columbia, Baja Mexico, and Greenland. As an instructor for REI Outdoor School, I’m always stoked to share my love for the outdoors with others, be it in backpacking, hiking, camping, or biking. I hold a BCU 4* Leader award, and is working towards advancement.
