My main concentrations are hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, kayaking (flat water), and ski touring in the backcountry.

I grew up in Ohio and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains on a ski trip to Vail for my 18th birthday. I finally made my way west after college and have been living the gypsy life ever since. It wasn't until a freak ski accident that I really immersed myself in camping and backpacking. I tore my ACL, MCL, meniscus, and rotator cuff so hiking was out of the picture all summer, so I camped, Fifteen straights weeks of camping later, I had exactly the kind of release and reflection that I needed during that time. I haven't stopped exploring and adventuring since.
