Chapter Chair

Born and raised in the South Bay, I was fortunate to grow up camping throughout the Sierra Nevada where my love for the mountains all began! It wasn't until '98 though that I was first introduced to climbing at the local gym. From that first climbing experience, I couldn't stay away. I spent every chance I could in the gym or at the local sandstone crag; Castle Rock. As soon as I had my license, I spent every weekend I could driving back out to the Sierra to wrestle my way up any and every boulder I could find. Now that I've started to grow up, it's become less about seeking out the latest epic project and more about sharing my passion with others!
