##Rock Climbing##

I’ve been rock climbing since 2006 and been fortunate enough to enjoy the sport in various adventurous, scenic, and inspiring locales - both in the US and abroad. Pictured above is the iconic line, Bandwagon, in Western Mass. While I cut my teeth bouldering at the Gunks, these days I prefer sport climbing or trad climbing. Notable and enjoyable routes done include: the accidental free solo (😖) of Hush Mama Thrush in Vermont, the unreal granite and exposure on Atlantis in New Hampshire, and the thrilling dyno on Saturday Night Live in Joshua Tree, California.

I graduated from Boston University (way back) in 2010, but have been fortunate enough to remain close with the friends I met while climbing at the BU rock wall. Our exploits have been featured online at Moja Gear. We continue to climb around the country!
