I am a climber, adventurer, and writer currently located in Boulder, Colorado. Born in Florida, my love for the mountains have taken me from the Himalayas to the Cascades, my love for culture has taken me throughout Italy, Turkey, and France, and my passion for exploration has guided my blog and my life. I am an ambassador for The North Face, Mountain Standard, and ECCO Outdoor Boots, I’ve published for The Clymb and Sierra Trading Post, and I work for Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides. I believe that travel and adventure should be accessible to everyone, regardless of geography or income, and a life dedicated to adventure and exploration is a life fulfilled. Do you want to join the adventure with me?
