In July of 2017, while kayak surfing in North Carolina, CJ dove off of a pier and broke his neck. Thankfully, his brother was close by, and was able to rescue him from the water. CJ “exploded” his C5 vertebrae in the accident.
CJ wants to live a life of consistent outdoor adventure through adaptive sport. As a previous ski instructor and whitewater rafting guide, CJ find true joy when outside. Recently, CJ has been introduced to bi-skiing and hopes to progress his skill.
“Anything worth doing, is worth over doing.“
