Originally from Los Angeles California I have had a lifelong love for the outdoors and throughout college developed my skills as an outdoor leader. I graduated in 2009 from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo with a degree in Recreation, Parks and Tourism Administration with a concentration in Outdoor Recreation. During my time there I spent four years working as a trip leader for the universities outdoor program where I lead numerous trips including backpacking, rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and canyoneering. Also, I worked as a ropes course facilitator and maintenance tech for the Cal Poly ropes course. Over the past year and a half I worked for a nascent event company as the volunteer coordinator and, among other tasks, recruited, organized, and directed volunteers. In my free time I enjoy road biking, mountain biking, wrenching on bicycles, rock climbing, and slacklining,. I just recently finished leading the 12 week Mt. Rogers Crew, and am excited to finish up my season with the Pisgah Crew.
