  • I grew up in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, but came to Colorado Springs when I joined the Army after high school. I started climbing and snowboarding during this time and decided to make Colorado my permanent home after my enlistment. I once enjoyed traveling to climb and run, but since having a little boy a few years ago I’ve found new joys in adventures close to home.


  • I now teach high school, guide rock and ice at Pikes Peak Alpine School, and spend most every weekend exploring and developing alpine crags with good folks.

goals for 2021

I currently have several crags that I’m looking to develop this summer, as well as finishing a guidebook for climbing and skiing on Pikes Peak.
