 It's so hard to choose one so I'll pick two: Maui and Malibu.
Claim to Fame:
  It was my dream to move to California and learn some sort of water-based activity. When I was 19 I made the move but school and work took over my focus. Over 10 years later I still had this dream. I ended up becoming very interested in paddle boarding, so I met my friend Jef Denholm and he challenged me to enter a local race. The next day I rented a board and showed up to the race without any prior training. I had no clue what I was doing but was able to be around champions of the sport and observe what they were doing and how they were paddling.  I LOVED being out in the water so much, I decided to get certified.
Person you'd most like to be on the water with:
Bethany Hamilton & Lauren Abraham. Both of these women are huge inspirations.

Best sunset you ever witnessed: I am extremely grateful for the beauty if every sunset but if I had to pick, it would be the sunsets I witnessed in Maui while I lived in a tree house.
Guilty pleasure:
  Doing things before I think i'm ready and facing the unknown. My mind is like what the F#@% but I just let my body lead me. I've had the most amazing adventures around the world and have met so many beautiful people who have helped me grow.
Catchiest song in your playlist:
Blurred lines, because I train so hard that sometimes blurred lines is all I see. HAHAHA
Food in your belly right now:
  Homemade Oatmeal, Cacao, Flaxseed pancakes
