How long have you been into climbing and fitness/Where did you learn?

In 2015, at the tender age of 18, I was introduced to climbing at my local gym. Despite an un-athletic background, I was hooked and have spent my time doing little else since then— even at the expense of my grades and social life.

What is your favorite book right now?

My favorite book is usually the one I’m reading or have just finished, but Murakami’s Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World still has me thinking about its protagonist’s demise.

What is your favorite thing to eat on a climbing trip/ outdoor adventure?

My go-to climbing trip fuel is a $.50 peach pie from Walmart.

If you could go back in time to any concert what would it be and why?

I would travel back and see Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii for one reason: Echoes.
