    About me

    I found climbing late in my life. It completely took over, becoming both a lifestyle and career. When I’m not climbing, setting, or instructing, I spend my free time creating miniature photography (@aworldofgiants), kiteboarding, or cruising around on an electric skateboard.

    Your Setting Experience

    I began Routesetting in 2009 in a small gym / climbing wall that very few people have ever heard of. From there, I joined the setting team at Central Rock Gym and now run 2 of their soon to be 15 locations. I am a level 4 USAC certified routesetter that has set for numerous competions ranging from local events through Divisional and National championships. One of the best parts of my job is the mentoring role I play. I truly enjoy sharing my passion for Routesetting with aspiring setters. I find teaching comes naturally to me, and I like to share that passion through setting clinics and mentor-ships.
