This will be my first season working with SCA and one to be remembered! I am truly excited about the four months to come with my crew in Nevada. It will be a whole new adventure for me. I cannot think of a better way to spend my summer than working hard with a small group of people as well as getting to sleep under the open night sky for three months!

During high school I found the love for football and played for three continuous years. This opportunity helped me gain confidence in working with a large team. Then toward the end of my senior year of high school I picked up my favorite sport so far. My love for rock climbing has taken me through one full year of the sport. I have traveled to beautiful places to climb on numerous different types of rock and meet quite the assortment of wonderful people. I tell people that climbing changed my life in a sense because it brought me outdoors on a very regular basis and I fell back in love with the outdoor world, a love that had slowly disappeared over the years.

I just returned on May 14th of this year from Joshua Tree National park where I climbed every chance I had as well as worked at the world renowned climbing/backpacking shop, Nomad Ventures. You could say I was Living The Dream. Now I am back and ready to start a new adventure with SCA. I am excited for what this summer will bring our crew!
