WHERE HE CALLS HOME:  Steamboat Springs, CO

HIS STORY: Driy is a multi-sport enthusiast and a STOKED paddling ambassador. Living and adventuring out of Steamboat Springs, CO,  he works as a Product Engineer / Graphic Designer for Hala Gear. That said, his river adventures are the core of his love for the outdoors and the foundation of his career. He started whitewater paddle boarding about 5 years ago and hasn’t stopped since. Now, as a designer of paddle boards, he finds any opportunity he can to get on the river and spread the stoke of this “goofy sport.” When he is not paddle boarding you can find him somewhere in the backcountry paragliding, mountain biking, splitboarding, or surfing on a foreign coast. No matter the adventure, he starts every day with a cup (or seven) of whatever STOKED bean he happens to have in his cabinet. He is excited to be a part of team STOKED and to continue spreading his love for the outdoors and caffeine fueled adventures!!   
HIS STOKE OF CHOICE: "First Tracks or Bluebird served black out of a french press only after 4 shots of STOKED Espresso in an iced latte"
