I have 13 years of experience in the creative world. My career started out working on location in remote British Columbia as the Art Coordinator for a reality based adventure television series. That experience forever stuck with me and after graduating from San Diego State University with a B.S. in Recreation Systems Management, I moved back to Northern California to be a photojournalist for my hometown newspaper. I have since gone on to work in many different aspects of editorial and commercial media. Whether it's writing, producing, directing, shooting, editing, location scouting, modeling, assisting, coordinating and logistics or telling jokes, I love to be involved in the process. My experiences have given me professional insight and expertise in a variety of services in-house, under contract or in freelance capacities. I invite you to take a look around my site and feel free to contact me with any questions. Let's work together!

“Every problem can have multiple solutions. To see them you have to look at the big picture overall. Don’t limit yourself to just one route.”
I won my first competition back in 2010 at the Mountain West Regional Championships held at Moab, Utah. Sending a 5.13a sport route in a single attempt earned me first place in the Men’s division. Before then, I’d received 1st and 2nd place at a few youth competitions. 2010 was my entry into the big leagues. A couple months after Moab, Utah, I traveled to El Paso, TX for the National Championships. I got second place by sending a 5.13c sport route in two attempts.
In 2012, I won first place in the Nationals held at Acadia National Park, Maine by flashing a V12 bouldering problem. It was my first time visiting the East Coast and I was glad to have been used to Jackson Hole’s more humid weather. I think that gave me an advantage that climbers from drier regions didn’t have. In 2015 I entered my first international competition in Cochamó, Patagonia, Chile. I didn’t place, but plan to for the 2016 championship in Krabi, Thailand.
