Zak grew up boating the rivers in Idaho as a second-generation river guide. His life has always been centered around rivers, and he has guided on five different continents plus New Zealand.
Idaho is Zak’s home, and for him, all adventures lead back there. Outside of guiding, Zak is an educator, a carpenter, a musician, a metalsmith and a naturalist. He is passionate about cultivating a genuine experience through his interactions with people on river trips. “There is no better place to appreciate a moment than in a boat on the river.”
