I've been climbing since I was 12. Introduced to it by the Boy Scouts. I cannot imagine my life without climbing and I love sharing the lifestyle I love so much with anyone who is interested. I've been teaching for 16 years, formally since 2003. In 2011, I started a small company where we make the world's only wood handled technical ice tool, the KRONOS, as well as the worlds only indoor ice and mixed climbing trainings tool, DRY ICE Tools.
