Bouldering at Willard Pond
September 2018

I used to be really into rock climbing, but over the past few years I've shied away from it more in favor of mountain biking and spending time doing outdoor activities where my dog can come along. For me climbing is as much about the people you climb with as the act of climbing itself...

Claremont Broduro
September 2016

Climbing at Marlow
June 2015

One of my favorite local climbing crags is Marlow, maybe a 25 minute drive from my house.

Bike Trip Across America
June-September 2009

Spring of 2009 came around and I was frustrated with my job, my long term relationship was coming to end, and I felt like I needed a fresh start. So when one of my coworkers asked me to join her and a few others on a bike trip across the United States, I said "Sure, why not?" and signed myself up...
