Western Regional Coordinator
Carlisle has been paddling since the mid-1970s and instructing for nearly that long. First involved with TRR as an occasional assistant at the Coatesville PA Chapter in 2011, he became joined the Palo Alto Chapter in 2017 after moving back to Santa Cruz California to care for his aging parents. A coordinator at Palo Alto since 2018, he is now also Coordinator of the Western Region.
The eldest of six siblings, Carlisle is terminally responsible. The retired genetic engineer and university professor and ordained Dudeist knows entirely too much about too many things, and often is dubbed “River Siri” on multi-day trips. Additionally, the Rev. Dr. Prof. Carlisle has represented the USA at the Surf Kayaking World Championships, is a reasonably talented photographer, and plays a mean blues harmonica.
