Where did you grow up?

I grew up in a small town called Middle of Nowhere in the Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania!

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

I started rock climbing in the spring of 2016, but was a long distance runner for years before that for my varsity high school cross country team!

What is your favorite book right now?

Ahhhh!!! Don’t make me pick a favorite work from a category so large!!!

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

Nut butters. I am particularly partial to the peanut variety but almond, cashew, and all others are always met with open arms. Smear that goodness on everything from apples to dark chocolate and my heart will always be full.

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

A collection of artists played at the funeral of John Coltrane, with a particular snippet of Albert Alyer giving one of the most passionate performances I’ve ever heard being the only recording of the event remaining. To witness these artists say goodbye to a titan of their professional and personal lives would be an emotionally intense and moving experience.
