I grew up in Golden, Colorado, though I didn't hike much there. I attended the University of Colorado, and moved to Boston MA after graduation. As soon as I moved away from the mountains, I immediately began to miss them. Now I would spend every weekend in the mountains if I could. I am looking to gain experience in winter climbing and ice climbing.
I am currently a mechanical engineer working near Providence, living in Watertown MA.
I hike mostly with people from my church(www.CFCFBoston.org, Brighton MA) but am always looking for hiking/camping/climbing partners around New England. Feel free to e-mail me if you want to get together for a hike or a rock climb. I have met alot of great people hiking, and I would love to meet more around New England. If you ever need a partner for snowshoeing or ice climbing, I'd love to go any time.
