PRIMARY SPORT: Climbing
PRIMARY RESIDENCE: Arizona

WHY WHITE PINE ATHLETICS: I need a training program that fits my unique lifestyle. I’m psyched to have a game plan to stay strong whilst traveling, without having to compromise time spent at the crag.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF: I’m a 19 year old currently living in Tucson, AZ. I started competing in 2009 and since then, my love & appreciation of climbing has grown. Now, I like to spend my time travelling to new places to boulder, sport climb, and trad climb outside.
WHAT DRIVES YOU AS AN ATHLETE: Climbing with my friends and watching them crush. There is absolutely nothing more inspiring than watching the homies rise to the top. When I see one of my friends finally send their project, or win a big competition, I literally cannot contain the excitement.
TOP ACHIEVEMENTS: Psicobloc Finalist 2016 (I have a fear of large bodies of water, and I do NOT like swimming, so this really challenged me physically and mentally).
FAVORITE PLACE: Colorado!!! Or Bishop... tough choice. :)
FAVORITE FOOD: Gummy worms!
WHAT'S ONE INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOURSELF: I have two little pet rats, (who are excellent crag rats), named Pinky and Algernon.
