Athlete

 

I have always been drawn to the outdoors, specifically, the mountains. I believe that we are built to move and that the joy in life is the experience of it. I treasure shared experience with quality people in stunning places. I value the contrast between effortless flow state movement and the work of trying hard. For over three decades I have sought the freedom to pursue the adventures that grow my capacity, offer a new adventure and add to the great experience of life.
