Competitions have been an integral part of my climbing experience since I began climbing at age 11.
Soon after moving to Colorado, I won three American Bouldering Series National Championships in the 2004 season.
In the 13 years since, I have added more than 25 podium finishes in major U.S. bouldering competitions to my climbing resume.

While competitions are no longer a significant part of my life, the competitor in me lives on and jumps back in the ring on occasion.
