    About me

    Born in the PNW, I m likely to never leave. Climbing is my main passion, but I also enjoy downhill mountain biking, skiing, slack-lining, and various art forms. I have a beautiful Great Dane-Lab-Greyhound mix pup named Carabiner, or Cara for short. We go literally everywhere together, even work! When I’m not at The Source working away, you can find me outside trying to push my sport climbing at Ozone, Broughton, French’s Dome and of course, Smith Rock.

    Your Setting Experience

    I began recreationally climbing in 2007, but kicked it in to high gear when I discovered my home gym The Source Climbing Center in 2012. Since I began “seriously” climbing, I have discovered my love for setting. In 2013 I was hired as a coach/front desk staff at The Source. After much nagging and prodding, in April 2014 Guruhans Kroesen, one of the most reputable head setters in the area, let me experience setting on the kids wall. It started as small help here and there to fill in for bouldering and the kids area until late 2015 when I became a full time setter at The Source.
