How'd you get started? My uncle, Michael Mariorenzi, paddled big whitewater while doing his general surgery residency. One day as a young child I came across some of his old pictures and became enthralled with whitewater kayaking.
Role model: My grandfather, A. Louis Mariorenzi, because he came from nothing and is a self-made man.
