Mid-20s New England-based hiker, mountaineer, and geologist working primarily on U.S. state highpoints, Canadian province/territory highpoints, and world country highpoints. Additional interests include prominence-based world peakbagging and creating new geologically-defined peakbagging lists. Outside of the U.S., I hope to focus my peakbagging and travel efforts in sub-Saharan Africa, the former Soviet states, and polar regions.

I am the ~635th person to complete the contiguous U.S. state highpoints, according to the Highpointers Club.
