Personal Profile

Occupation: Barista, gear shop, freelance photgrapher
Interests: I want to climb everything. I'm interested in doing more outdoor bouldering, trad climbing, sport climbing, aid, multi-pitch, big wall, ice climbing, technical mountaineering, skiing and or snowboarding, backpacking, kayaking, skydiving, long trips that involve all of these. Normally, I'm comfortable getting on 5.10b and pushing myself on .10c, and the occasional .10d, but after a few tendon injuries (or injuries, and then a few re-injuries), i need to get back in the swing of things. My favorite places to climb are RRG, Moab, and Ouray.

More Info:
Good climbing partners are rare, and lousy ones are a dime a dozen. I love climbing, but in the past year I have been set back by tendon injuries, and lack of capable climbing partners (belayers that don't take up slack, people who teach unsafe habits, or people that think they can learn to belay by just, "figuring it out" just because they have TR belayed for someone a few times). While I'm in KY, I plan on taking advantage of the world class climbing in my back yard, and the many other playgrounds within a days drive. Eventually, when the time is right, I'll be venturing out west, somewhere I can have paddling, climbing and mountaineering, backpacking, and spectacular scenery to do photography professionally. I'd also like to spend time in Nepal climbing and working with people living in poverty and orphans.
