Meet the Staff Mondays…
Carolina Beach State Park
After six years of active duty service in the Army as a medic (the last three years of which were served at Fort Bragg, NC in the 82nd Airborne Division), Michael decided to move Wilmington, NC to be near the water. Michael is from Charleston, SC and grew up paddling canoes and various flat-bottomed open boats in the brackish waters of Mount Pleasant, SC. His first kayak endeavor was on Terrapin Creek in Alabama, and he’s been hooked ever since. He brought this passion back to the Charleston area, navigating the Edisto River and leading small groups to Capers Island on overnight trips. Since joining the Paddle NC team, he has further honed his skills and is excited to share an experience on the water with you. In his spare time Michael enjoys surfing, cycling, and performing live music.
