I was born and raised in Alaska and had the amazing privilege of spending my youth in incredible settings of beauty. This really shaped the experience that inspires me to this day and I have always tried to maneuver my life to exist in these situations. I find adventure, which for me is both a mindset and a set of actions, to be the most fulfilling expression of life. When I found climbing at 19 or perhaps climbing found me, the unique set of movements and terrains the body can occupy totally captured me. Every-time, to pull onto the rock is a trip to the unknown and adventure of the moment. You could do what you have never done before and all in a moment’s time. Climbing has allowed me to broaden my sense of adventure from only the grand expedition style to realizing that all you need is the moment and the rock to participate in the adventure of the unknown. Climbing is a medium, an action to which not only lends itself to traveling and adventure but is truly built around it. I have expressed this passion in climbing and establishing new boulders and routes in 5 continents with of course plans for more.
