Bio

I am an 19 year old professional rock climber from Boulder, Colorado. My love for the sport originates from my family's deep roots in climbing and has grown through countless competitions and trips to my favorite outdoor crags. I am currently a student at the University of San Diego studying marketing but taking this semester off to train for the Olympic games. I started climbing when I was 2 years old, competed nationally since I was 7 years old and internationally since I was 14 years old. I am not only a competitive rock climber, but also push myself on hard boulders and sport climbs outdoors. I have sent several 8b’s and two 8b+ boulders with most of my hard ascents being this past summer of 2020.
