My climbing partner (red) and I (blue) on the last objective of a weeklong ice climbing course in Slovenia, 2018.
A defining characteristic is my perpetual curiosity and desire to know more and push the boundaries of what I think I’m capable of, what I’m comfortable with, or what I think I know. This translates into everyday life and work where I don’t take a cookie cutter approach (ie, doing only as much as what’s asked and not anything more). This means I am very driven to provide results and to establish good working relationships where possible. At the same time, I live by the philosophy that life is too short to delay living until later so I seek a balance between work and life and enjoy taking the time off to explore and reset from the stresses of everyday work demands.
