I discovered climbing in college and in the course of the years since then it has shaped my life in ways I never imagined. The process of learning our own mind, training our physical abilities and then applying them in the mountains is how I define success. Striving to be true to our own internal motivations and not a creature of comparison is a philosophy has climbing taught me.

My interests range from sport climbing at the local crag to alpine pursuits in the greater ranges of the world. I take tremendous pride in offering a wide perspective of experience to clients and encourage them to seek a variety of climbing objectives and goals to become proficient climbers.

In 2006, I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa. Click here to see my AMGA guide track progress.
