I grew up in Knoxville, TN just outside the Smoky Mountains. I have been hiking and camping since I was young but I had not tried rock climbing until the summer of 2015 while living in Jackson, WY. I loved it immediately and started lead climbing on my fifth trip out to the crag. After leaving Jackson I went on a 4 month climbing trip through the Mediterranean and South East Asia. It was a memorable experience that allowed me to grow quickly as a climber. I am now back in Tennessee for the summer climbing at the Obed and converting a van into a camper to take on my next climbing adventure: a 6 month road trip across the Western United States and Mexico. I’m excited to continue traveling and especially psyched to keep pushing myself to grow as a climber!
