I grew up In Spokane, Washington. The Pacific Northwest, in my opinion, is the greatest place on earth to be a climber and outdoorsman. All disciplines of climbing can be entertained within a short distance from my home. I grew up climbing, but never intended for it to become a part of my daily life. I saw first-hand the difficulties intertwined with climbing and family. As I became more involved, I realized what my father had felt as I was growing up. Climbing becomes an addiction...an obsession. I feel lost and useless without it. Mountains help me navigate what is most important to me.They balance the chaos that is regular life. Balance is what I strive to accomplish with climbing—a balance of life, love and mountains. Alpine climbing is a lifelong activity. I live and breath it.
