I’m an Iowa native with a knack for adventure. When I was 5, I started skiing at the legendary but now defunct ski resort of Fun Valley near Montezuma, IA. By the age of 12, I had camped all across the western United States in a charming, yet stuffy pop-up camper. To this day, I still equate the smell of moth balls with family vacations.
After high school, I moved west to the magical land of California. There, I continued my adventuring, exploring seaside caves and vast sand dune beaches while occasionally attending college classes. Eventually, I returned to my homeland to start anew. I was told normal people work up the corporate ladder, so I started climbing at Climb Iowa.
I continue to call Des Moines home, but regularly wander to far off places in search of climbing and skiing.
