I am Wyoming born and raised. I grew up in Cody, Wyoming and have lived here in Lander, Wyoming for approximately 7 of the last 12 years. I consider myself a boulderer and sport climber. I started climbing in the Shoshone Canyon west of Cody in the spring of '94. My friends and I primarily climbed on the limestone, dolomite and granite sport crags. We made trips to Lander often and discovered the steeper and higher quality rock found at Sinks Canyon and Wild Iris. It was because of this high quality stone, and the great climbing community Lander has, that I made my first extended stay in the area the summer after I graduated high school, 1997. I devoted the summers of my youth to sport climbing, but a few years down the line I spent several years in my hometown of Cody developing and climbing the great sandstone boulders that are strewn about the side of Cedar Mountain. More recently, I have spent my climbing days out doing circuits from my youth, cleaning new boulder problems, working a sport project at Iris, and have bolted a few lines both at Wild Iris and at Sinks Main Wall. I feel my concentration toward climbing in the present is that of a developer and steward of the gardens and crags that have been an integral part of my personal climbing life.
