    I’ve been climbing for the better part of 10 years now. I climbed a bit as a kid but didn’t really get into it until I attended Texas Tech University. I competed in the Collegiate Climbing Series while I was a student and was an Officer of the Tech Climbing Club. We took many trips to New Mexico where I really fell in love with climbing.

    I’ve been a Coach for Orange Crush and USA Climbing certified Coach since 2016. Each season we’ve taken athletes to compete at Nationals and we don’t plan on stopping.
