After spending six years climbing, skiing, and raft guiding in the Southern Rockies, I decided it was time to move to Fort Collins. I had just arrived fresh off of a five-month bouldering trip that took me to: Utah, Squamish, Yosemite, Bishop, Flagstaff, and Hueco Tanks. The climbing bug had complete control over me and exploring the Poudre Canyon become a high-priority. The climbing community was kind enough to show me some of the local climbing areas and gave me the opportunity to help in development and stewardship activities. Fort Collins gifted me the opportunity to climb year round; I was psyched and ready to help!
I’m excited to join the NC3 as a board member and to play a critical part in the future of Northern Colorado rock climbing. Influencing and mentoring other climbers to climb in a way that is respectful both socially and environmentally is something I’m very passionate about. After receiving my Bachelors of Science from CSU in Parks and Protected Area Management, I continued to develop my knowledge on land restoration, trail construction, and land-use planning; knowledge that I find specifically useful in the development of new climbing areas. When I’m not outside climbing, I enjoy spending time with my lovely lady, our two dogs, and running a small landscaping business.
Life is worth fully living and I look forward to seeing you out in the canyon!
