Since: 2016

About Me: Married for 16 years with 2 girls; 13 and 10. Climbing has been a major aspect of my life for almost 20 years. For many years I was focused on climbing harder and more aggressive lines. This has moved to a focus on the experience and enjoyment of the climb. This has led to longer less difficult climbs that have a cool feature or in an interesting setting.

Best Climbing Story/What I love about climbing… To date my happiest moment climbing was when I topped out on Devils Tower in WY with my 12 year old daughter.
