Adventures by the Sea — Kayak California

My new video for Adventures by the Sea is live, check it out. I work as a kayak guide for Adventures by the Sea in Monterey, and this footage is from a tour of Stillwater Cove, which is just north of Big Sur and Carmel off the shore of the famous Pebble Beach golf course, west side of the Monterey Peninsula, exposed to the Pacific. I shot this footage on a gorgeous day in January, and everything went right- dolphins, jellies, kelp, thread the needle, otters, pristine ocean paradise right here at home. I’m holding the camera the whole time, either a Nikon point and shoot or a Go Pro chesty.

I hope this makes you want to get outdoors and see a dolphin, because that’s the good life! I’m excited about this project- sharing the beauty of the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur is becoming very important to me. This place is rapidly feeling like home even though I’ve been here less than a year. Enjoy.

Thought Catalog was kind enough to publish my latest short-short story, a tale of silver keys, locked doors, music, wine- all in less than 500 words. Enjoy!

My accomplice Aaron Birr and I recently convened to discuss a new adventure planned for July 2015. While details of said adventure (think Pacific Ocean peril…) are pending, we are proud to show you this latest video from the Flying Canoe archives. Compliments Aaron for excellent editing.

Rising: A Poem to California

Rising Pic


Time-crunched, tired,
Erratic, out-of-control,
Fluid, true,
Golden, strong,
Vulnerable, victorious,
Blemished, unglued,
with confidence and desire,
Bold, bright,
with the fire
of something new.

There is a front moving in
It is I
I am the wind
the earth
the moon
they answer my call.

It is beginning.
The tide is rising.

It is carrying me home.
