A little about me
I am a professional firefighter who enjoys the outdoors on my time off. I rock climb, ice climb, mountaineer, backpack, hike, and scramble up many cliffs and peaks across the country. I enjoy the challenge of a 1 pitch sport climb at the local craig or the mountaineer's route on Mount Whitney in the middle of winter. I love the challenge of the rock, the peacefulness of the mountains and the beauty of nature. However throughout my climbing I have a heightened sense of caution and take Ed Viesturs's quote to heart "Getting to the top is optional. Getting down is mandatory." In addition to all of my climbing, my wife and I have a goal of reaching all the state highpoints.
