What does your involvement in your sport mean to you? Why did you fall in love with it?

Climbing is weird.  It’s problem solving with an artistic stroke.  It’s a game in which you can neither win nor lose.  Your only competitor you must face is maintaining the equilibrium of both mind and body.  Climbing to me is such a personal experience and it feels so natural to move with the features of the rock.  The complexity yet simplicity of climbing is what made me fall in love.  There are so many things to think about before a climb, but the moment I get on the rock is when reality begins to dissipate.  All that is on my mind is the movement along with the gradual flow my body absorbs as I continue to climb.  In simpler terms; climbing is satisfying.  Yet as a climber I am never truly satisfied.  There is always another piece of rock waiting to be climbed.

Out of all the product sponsorships out there, why is Primo the one for you?

I really like Primo Chalk.  Not only the chalk itself, but the people behind it.  Primo truly is primo.  It’s a top quality product made by people who love what you love.  The Primo brand is driven by passion and excellence and that is why I back them.  I am passionate about my climbing and they understand that by making astounding chalk to help me push my limits.

What is a surprising fact about yourself that we wouldn’t expect to hear?

I suppose a surprising fact about me is that I love to do voices and impressions.  Whether it be Christopher Walken or Bobby Hill;  I really enjoy embodying a character with my voice.

What does your involvement in your sport mean to you? What made you fall in love with it?
Climbing for me is a lifestyle. Being a climber is a lot more then just being strong and fit. Its about the adventure. The idea of pushing yourself mentally is very important for me. I really love the instant gratification. I’m always staying stoked whether I on sight a route or finally get that red point Ive been working on.

Out of all the product sponsorships out there, why is Primo the one for you?
Quality chalk is super important for climbers. I personally need it in order to climb. I like the forward thinking mentality of this company and really want to be apart of a team where I can have the opportunity to climb all over the US and really get involved in the climbing community.

I can do a 540 turn going backwards on a bicycle.
