Favorite Surf Break: Hanalei Bay, Kauai
A lifelong surfer, Swampy puts his experience in the water to practical application ensuring the safety of our athletes and volunteers. An Emmy Award Nominated creator, writer, and producer of such shows as Phineas and Ferb & Pete the Cat, his gregarious personality and natural leadership abilities make a day of water safety a great experience for everyone. Swampy lives in Venice with his wife Bear. He has two children, Django (also a seven year AWOW safety volunteer and ambassador), Jenny, four grandkids -Adyson, Nolan, Jakob, and Chloe, & Timmy, a 15 year old Border Collie.
Swampy has been a part of AWOW since 2013. One of the first events at which he volunteered, a child that he was helping into the water told him, “This is the coolest thing I’ve ever gotten to do because of my brother” It made him realize just how special AWOW is because of the way they include the whole family and has been involved ever since.
