I'm foremost an adventurer. I love the experiences of seeing new places and meeting new people. No better way to preserve these experiences for other people to enjoy than through photography and writing. I grew up in Portland, Oregon during that time I started writing and seeing the world. I first started writing poetry at 15 and climbing. After I hit the age of 19, I flew the coop to Seattle/Bellingham, Washington. During the four years I was in Washington I had a few jaunts to Alaska and British Columbia. I got my taste of multipitch rock climbing in BC. All while I continue to climb, ski and photograph my passion and write my path.
