A close friend and paddling partner of Alex, Ted began his paddling career also at SUNY Plattsburgh’s Expeditionary Studies program. Like Alex, Ted was introduced to sea paddling along with whitewater kayaking and open canoeing and still practices all three. Over the past few years, Ted has been fortunate to work and played in various parts of the world, traveling, paddling and living in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Nepal, Bolivia, Chile, Washington State, Alaska, and British Columbia.
His main focus and passion is in expedition paddling though he enjoys any day of boating. In addition to his B.S. in expeditionary studies, Ted has a B.A. in philosophy which he continues to study with interest.
Notable places he has paddled:
Pacific Coast of Baja Peninsula (featured in Ocean Paddler #62) and various islands in the Gulf of California
Various saltwater fjords and rivers of southern Chilean Patagonia
Whitewater rivers in Nepal by packraft
Washington State’s Olympic Coast and San Juan Islands
Various parts of the Inside Passage along the coasts of Washington, British Columbia, and Alaska
