I started climbing in 2004, I loved it so much that I quit my job and went traveling and climbing overseas in 2006. I have climbed in Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and China. I ended up staying in China and worked as a rock climbing guide there. I came back to the US in 2011, moved to Colorado for the mountains in 2012, but stopped climbing because I was busy making a living. Now my life is finally back in order, I'm trying to get back into climbing shape again and looking for partners for everything from bouldering to sport to trad to alpine. I have a little boy and a little girl at home so my risk tolerance is pretty low.
