Growing up in Southeast Tennessee, I was blessed to be surrounded by whitewater, mountains, and the amazing culture that the Ocoee River brings to its area. As a teenager, I was exposed to kayaking and rafting early on. While in college, I started river guiding on the Ocoee and Pigeon rivers during the summer so that I could spend my free time paddling around the Tennessee area. After a few seasons of guiding, I began to venture out to other locations to work different rivers. I have found my passion in whitewater and all the beautiful people you meet in the paddling community. Jake Trotter and I started this company with the shared vision of showing our guests, friends, and family an unforgettable experience on the rivers we paddle and love. I and everyone at Ace Ocoee Adventures can’t wait to meet you and share all the great activities this spectacular area offers. See you on the river!!
