Although I technically began climbing at the age of 10 at the local climbing gym, I’ve been a climber my entire life. As a child I was fascinated by the mountains and people who climbed them and naturally spent much of my time climbing in trees, on playgrounds, or even dragging myself across the living room floor imagining myself on the side of a mountain. When my Mom bought me a belay course and membership to our local gym I immediately became a climbing fiend, spending countless hours pulling plastic and breathing in chalk dust. But eventually I drifted away from the indoor/competition scene, finding myself drawn to the natural beauty of the mountains over artificial climbing walls. This led me to begin alpine climbing and by the time I was 15 years old I had rediscovered my love for challenging, technical rock climbs. Now I am 20 years old, based out of Squamish B.C where I spend most of my time seeking out inspiring lines to test my mental and physical abilities on the rock, ice, or in the mountains.
