About me

I like the obscure and esoteric, the forgotten "classics" and the unremembered "test pieces" of yesteryear.

I like technicality, thinness, boldness, exposure and the truly inspiring.

I've thrown away a promising career in Project Management to chase my climbing dreams, and so far I don't regret it for a moment.

Carpe Diem.
