What inspired me to travel
I love pushing myself a little past my comfort zone. Being in new places does that for me.
Most notable achievement
A few of my first ascents (new alpine routes) in Alaska and achieving IFMGA mountain guide status.
Next on the bucket list
Spending a summer on a sailboat in the Mediterranean - exploring all the rock climbing destinations!
Advice for new adventure travelers
Travel and tread lightly. Forego rental cars and hotels whenever possible! Buy a nice, small camera.
Why I Embark
I find that travel gives me a new perspective on things. It's very easy for me to get into a routine (rut?) when in one place for too long.
