I grew up in small town South Carolina working on farms and in the agricultural industry. I left to attend Clemson University where I majored in Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management. After working for the Clemson outdoor program I knew that outdoor recreation would be my calling. I had been working for The Gorge Zipline and Green River Adventures in Saluda, NC. On September 10th, I left and headed out west. Climbing at every spot I can along the way as well as taking my AMGA Single pitch instructor certifications. Who knows where my final destination will be?
