Guide since 2011 MT, ID, WA, OR, China, joined ROW 2010. Jonah's first rafting trip was on the Salmon River at 9 months of age and it's fair to say he has grown up rafting. Since becoming a guide, he has become an avid kayaker and all around outdoorsman spending his free time climbing, backcountry skiing, mountain biking and hiking. He also loves projects and can be found helping friends upgrade their houses or building out their camper vans. After graduating from Pomona College with a Bachelor's Degree in Physics, Jonah found himself travelling the world, including spending a year in China raft guiding on the Salween and Daqu (upper Mekong) river and kayaking on days off, including a solo kayak first descent on the Kanas river in the far northern region of Xinjiang. Now back in Idaho, Jonah has taken on the role of ROW's Operations Manager with a hand in the logistics of all our trips across four states.
Garrett has been guiding with ROW Adventures since 2019 and loves the feeling of being in the “Wild West” that Montana offers. Originally from Brooklyn, New York, he holds a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Sociology with a minor in Outdoor Studies from St. Lawrence University and first got involved in river life while at college. One of his most treasured childhood memories is throwing snowballs at New York City taxis before quickly running away! When it comes to his most amazing life experiences, Garrett describes seeing the sunrise atop the tallest mountain in New York, Marcy Mountain, followed by sunset from the top of the One World Trade Center as up there with his best days on Earth. Aside from being a skier and a tennis player, Garrett describes his special skill as being able to fit everything he owns into his Subaru Outback.
A river guide since 1990, Bill has worked part-time for ROW since 2004 and joined our full-time team in 2022. Born and raised in the Cleveland, Ohio area – near the headwaters of the Cuyahoga River, which infamously caught fire in 1969 – Bill has been rafting and canoeing rivers for more than four decades. A former journalist, Bill published in 1995 a collection of short stories about river running called River’s End: A Collection of Bedtime Stories for Paddlers. Over the years he’s also worked hard in various capacities to protect the rivers, fish and wild places he has grown to love. From 1996 to 1999, Bill served on the board of the national advocacy group, American Whitewater. He served six years as president of the non-profit Save Our Wild Salmon Coalition (2007-2013). From 1999 to 2015 Bill worked as executive director of Idaho’s only statewide river conservation group, Idaho Rivers United (IRU). During his tenure at IRU, Bill led efforts to protect the Owyhee, Bruneau and Jarbidge Rivers of Southwest Idaho as federally protected Wild & Scenic Rivers, and, guided the organization to several other important river conservation victories. In 2015, he was named a national “River Hero” by the nationwide association of river conservation groups, The River Network. Since his ‘retirement’ from IRU, Bill has worked mainly as a river ranger for the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management on various rivers. He spends his winters bird watching, attempting to learn Spanish and doing a little rafting — in Costa Rica.
After studying accounting at Adams State University Cole knew he wanted to be on the river. Born and raised in Durango, Colorado, Cole spent plenty of time on the river and in the San Juan Mountains as a kid. He was a competitive wrestler for most of his life including through college. He recently moved to Coeur D’Alene, Idaho for a slower pace of life and to continue river guiding in a new environment. In the off-season, you can find Cole on the mountain skiing or snowboarding. If you catch him on the river, you can call him by his nickname, “cole-slaw!”
Guide Since 2011: WA, CO, OR. Joined ROW in 2016. Julianna, or Jules to many, has been a professional river guide since 2011. Growing up in Southern Oregon near her beloved Rogue, she was drawn to the river from an early age. She began guiding professionally during college, and has warmly embraced the path that river guiding has helped her carve out. Guiding has taken her to Washington, Colorado, and home to Oregon. For Jules, rivers offers a unique opportunity to illuminate for others the transformative power of the natural world. When not on the river, Julianna attends Naropa University, where she is pursuing an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in Wilderness Therapy. She hopes this degree will help realize her dream of facilitating transformation through relationship with the river.
