Hometown: Dana Point, CA
Favorite Rock Type: Sandstone
Favorite Climbing Area: The New River Gorge
Goal: Enjoy climbing for what it is.
In 2013 I graduated from UCLA with a bachelors in Civil Engineering, but I also discovered rock climbing. Through 2014, I worked as a project engineer for a general contractor. In 2015, everything changed. I hit road and decided to try to be a dirtbag rock climber. So far, what I have come to realize is that climbing is ephemeral; the satisfaction gained from accomplishment is momentary. However, the process of growing, the people it brings into your life, and the places it takes you are what make climbing such a fulfilling way of life.
Everyday, Onsight Gear helps me indulge in this wonderful world of rock climbing, while minimizing my visual impact on the rock.
