Notable outdoor adventures: To me, adventure is all about having fun and pushing your own personal limits. If you can stick to that then each adventure is notable! Adventures from Big Wall climbing in Zion, attempts in Alaska and climbing in Canada. Free Climbing granite routes in the Sierra, CA, Tetons, J-tree and climbing ice in the ADK, BC skiing in the Northeast have been great adventures and lessons. 

Fondest memory in the Adirondack Park: Any day spent in the Adirondack Mountains climbing in the fall, spring skiing or summer hiking with friends and family is an awesome memory for me.

When you’re not working, what are you doing? Spending time with family, cooking seasonal food, climbing, skiing, running, daydreaming of the next trip and where its going to be…

Favorite food after a long day in the mountains: Beer, salty french fries and a good ol’ burger, maybe some greens.
