(Student, Runner, Videographer, and Climber) Growing up in the Houston suburbs doesn’t exactly provide much access to the outdoors for a young fellow. Luckily, I lived next door to a rare patch of woods that was the perfect spot to play with friends, build tee-pee’s, and read Harry Potter until dark. This was where I fostered a love for both adventure and nature. For me, rock climbing is a great excuse to skip town and enjoy this beautiful creation we live in. I grew up in a musician’s home, and I consider myself lucky to have been exposed early to deep creative passion. I have found that both nature and music deepen my life’s experiences, and I am very passionate about both.
