I live in Squamish, BC, and work full time as a high school science teacher. One of the most rewarding components of my job is coaching and running the climbing club that I started at the school a few years ago. The kids think of me as some sort of ninja, and that is handy street credit to have in the hallways:) Outside of the classroom, I can most often be found bouldering in the forest in Squamish. Whether I’m projecting with friends, touring people around, or doing a solo circuit, it’s my favourite way to decompress. Squamish is amazing in the fall, and I have my eye on some awesome lines. I also have plans for travel, as climbing new problems is one of my favourite things and it’s always amazing to climb somewhere new. Goal-wise: I am focused on continuing to get stronger, always learning, staying psyched, and having fun, pushing my own limits, and to keep climbing new things.
My favourite product is the Bert Brush. The size and dense bristles make if perfect for brushing big Squamish slopers. So satisfying.
