Personal Note:

"I have been climbing for 10 years and have climbed all over the country in the White Mountains, The Adirondacks, Joshua Tree California, Smith Rock Oregon, City of Rocks Idaho and Red Rocks Nevada just to name a few. Throughout my years of climbing I have developed a unique understanding of how to set and achieve goals both large and small. I have also gained an appreciation for how important your partners are in achieving those goals. I am a member of the American Mountain Guides Association and the American Alpine Club and I manage the Climbing Wall in Pearson McGonigle Halls Atrium."
