Long before I started rock climbing, I had a passion for the mountains. Nothing can humble, invigorate and inspire me like the experience of interacting with the grand mountains of the world. Although my Dad had encouraged me to explore climbing for years, it was not until I was 18 that I fell in love with rock climbing after trying bouldering as a form of cross training for downhill mountain bike racing.

From the very beginning of my journey with climbing I have continually pursued my limits and raced after goals. The experience has been life changing, and as a result I feel deeply indebted to the community and the natural world. Now climbing has emerged as a vehicle for travel (another strong passion of mine), a dynamic set of challenges and a lifestyle I very much enjoy.

During the summer of 2011, I took the logical next step in my pursuit of climbing by giving up any fixed address, buying a pick-up and hitting the road indefinitely. Now, with the helpful support of my sponsors, I’m motivated more than ever to stay traveling and climbing all year.

Since I started in 2004 my climbing has been in constant evolution. I’ve really learned to love the process involved with setting goals and striving to achieve them. Hard climbing is invariably defined by more failure than success, but every once and a while I manage to get things done- the feeling of hard work rewarded with accomplishment is incredible; it’s what keeps me going.

Below is a list of some of my successes over the years, with my all-time favorites in bold.
