Climbing has been a part of my life for so long it is hard to imagine where I would be
or what I would be doing without it. When I was 12 years old I went on my first climbing
trip to the New River Gorge in West Virginia. From then on I knew what I wanted to
be doing with my life. I never imagined that I would be so blessed to have all the
opportunities that climbing has afforded to me. To be able to call myself a professional
in a sport that has given me so much is a dream come true.
Climbing is not just something I do anymore; it has become part of who I am and the
lifestyle associated with the sport that has become my own. It’s why I train, it’s what
pushes me and it’s the one thing I know I will do for the rest of my life.
I am currently traveling the country climbing, establishing new lines and developing
new boulder problems. My focus has been projects that test me physically and
mentally. Recently, I have left my mark on new and established areas by adding,
repeating hard boulders, sport climbs along with helping develop relationships in
local communities for my sponsors and with land managers to preserve climbing
access for the future.
I want to catch a shark. other goals... continue to boulder hard, trad climb as much as possible and push my limits. I have specific climbs in mind but they always change and I doubt I would have the time to update them here.
Favorite Climbing Areas:
New River Gorge WV, RMNP, The Dirty South, Joes Valley, any home crag in PA.
Mostly everything thats interesting.
