Born in May 14th 1987 and raised in Fairfield County Connecticut—not exactly a mecca for rock climbing—I spent a lot of time outdoors, and some time as a teenager mountaineering and honing rope skills in the mountains that would later serve my rock climbing. I started traditional mountaineering when I was 11 years old, and it wasn’t until I went to college in Boston that I began pushing my limits in the sport. I spent a lot of time in Vermont and New Hampshire in the White Mountains and the Presidential Range. Now I’m a USAC Routesetter and USAC Coach based in Los Angeles, LA.
