Local Access TV Interview - "Darlene Carmen Presents"

I was interviewed on a local access TV show that plays in the San Jose area called "Darlene Carman Presents".  They interviewed me on kayaking and the magazine.  Neither of the interviewers had ever kayaked, which made it both challenging and good.  Challenging in that the questions seemed to come out of the blue, but good in that it forced me to talk about kayaking at a level of someone who doesn't, which is really what their viewers likely are.</p>

The show can be viewed online at

In the interview, they talk about more videos of mine that one can watch.  These can be seen on my Youtube page.
