Head Routesetter + Graphic Designer
I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan where I grew up doing all kinds of sports. I discovered climbing when I was 12, leaving all other sports behind. I found the climbing community to be amazingly supportive, and I had some great mentors along the way to push me and help me grow as a climber. Some of my accomplishments within the competitive scene include finishing 8th place in the Beijing youth worlds in 2005, winning youth nationals in 2007, and taking 5th place at ABS nationals in 2008. With my competing days over I have a passion to being a mentor to the new generation of climbers.
