Mazamas Leader Profile
Climbing Since: 1989
Mazamas Leader Since: 1994
I Like Climbing On: Everything
Mazamas Service: Expedition Committee back in the late '90s. Committee chair one of those years. Served on the Climb Committee '06, '07 & '08 and was the coordinator for Advanced Rock in 2007.
Major Climbing Achievements: McKinley, West Buttress in 1993, Mt. Rainier, Liberty Ridge, 1997 and North Ridge of Mt. Stuart, Aug 1996.
Climbing and Leadership Philosophy: I prefer acting as the climb organizer and enabler rather than a autocratic climb leader, and I like the democratic method of making decisions. I dislike meeting large groups in the wilderness and so will rarely take large groups myself. Typically my climbing parties will be 4-8 people including myself and the assistant.
Favorite Summit Treat: I like surprises.
Personal Information: I’m a native Oregonian who grew up playing in the outdoors. I find now that I can’t live without it. Other favorite activities include cooking, science of all kinds, trying to learn Spanish, hanging out with my family, and traveling.
