Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest in USA. I’ve lived in the desert and on the beach but keep coming back to the mountains. Began running wilderness trips for kids and college students in 2001. I’m a regular at several local crags in the Portland Oregon area. I also love mountaineering and backpacking.
