Mountains in my Blood

Mountain adventure has always been a part of my life. My parents met while backpacking in the Olympic Mountains in the summer of 1974, and proceeded to spend much of the 70s and early 80s trekking around Washington's rugged ranges. I was born in May 1983, and just three months later they took me on my first overnight backpacking trip near Mt. Temple, Alberta; I was eaten alive by bugs, but reportedly I had a smile on my face the entire time. My first real alpine climb was at the age of 11, when my dad and I climbed Overhanging Tower in the Wind River Range of Wyoming. My technical climbing skills developed during my undergraduate years (2002-6) at Stanford University, situated just a few hours from Yosemite. Since then, I have lived numerous days following and continuing my parents' boot tracks, mountaineering and climbing all over western North America. At this point, I cannot imagine a life without climbing.

My website provides trip reports for numerous big climbs and multiday mountain expeditions, as well as a few exciting roadtrips and aerial photography adventures. No matter how tough or long the climb, my camera and insatiable need to document always come along, so my trip reports contain plenty of photos and beta.
