Climbing is by far my favorite activity but it is among many wonderful factors of what makes me tick. I strive to be happy and give more than I receive.
I was born and raised in Bend, Oregon. Since 1994, I’ve gained my inspiration for climbing from many local old school climbing heroes like Scott Franklin, Brooke Sandahl and Alan Watts. Over the years, climbing has taught me so much. Other than developing fingers fatter than my ankles, I have acquired a deep appreciation for Oregon Pinot Noir, micro brew, and good food. Aside from climbing, I spend time practicing cutting edge dance moves (I like to party), music, fly fishing, bombing hills not countries via snowboarding, bike rolling, traveling in my vansion, and rafting Wild & Scenic rivers. I have a wonderful dog Ruby (aka Ghostface Killah) who travels with me when possible,
