Spending time in the mountains and other wild places throughout the world with fantastic people is a tremendous privilege. Climbing has been a pathway for me to explore ways to live life in a better way and I've learned so much from being involved in this sport. I am eternally grateful to all who've shared their love and kindness as friends and mentors to me.
Climbing is also about taking responsibility for yourself and remembering that there are others who will be affected by your choices. Carpe diem!
