About me

Born in Pennsylvania, USA, my climbing career began in the early aughts, pebble wrestling with the impeccable sandstone diabase of Mt Gretna and Governor's Stable. Later, I spent many years bouldering and sport climbing in the American New England, before relocating to Northern California. There I discovered the dark arts of trad and aid, and I enjoyed countless rambles on the glorious granite of the Sierra Nevada. In recent times, I've been collaborating with a cracking crew of lads to establish a new adventure sport climbing area in the farthest boreal reaches of California. Shhhh....

I would be remiss to not mention the many alpine ascents I've done on high altitude nevados in the Andes, mostly during stints living in Quito and Santiago. While I likely will always prefer to pull on stone, front pointing has grown on me over the years.

However, it's not something that I do often in my current home of Southeast Queensland. Here, I spend much more time on ancient trachyte, rhyolyte, and sandstone, practising the trifecta of trad, sport, and bouldering. When I can sneak away, you can find me deep water soloing in Vietnam, clipping bolts at 3500m above sea level in South America, or bagging peaks in Nepal, Hong Kong, Morocco, or wherever else I end up.
