Occupation: unemployed artist


Rock climbing
Plein Air painting in the mountains


Boot/Shoe Size10

I got out 70 days into the wilderness hiking and climbing this year. That was a record. I like the Cascade mountains, but the Olympic mountains are closer and pretty nice especially in the winter. Always looking for rock climbing partners. I am a perpetual beginner, but willing to lead easy pitches or follow most anything. I have lived in, and climbed and hiked in Alaska, California, and Washington State.
