I am not what has happened to me, I am what I choose to become. - Carl Jung

 

Home town: South Paris

 



A traditional team-sports athlete growing up and strength athlete in college, I discovered vertical sports post school and fell in love with the mountains. Alpinism specifically stole my heart. I love the problem solving nature of finding interesting ways to climb higher and higher peaks. The movement of climbing has its appeal, but I really appreciate the quiet suffering I learned to do on big days up high, learning true patience and endurance. Operating an athletic performance training facility, it was an easy transition into coaching mountain athletes. TruStrength Athletics now helps prepare climbers, runners and skiers to be stronger, faster and better prepared in the world of vertical sport.



 

What do you train for? Motivation come from?

I train for alpine climbing, rock, ice etc., mountain running & trekking, backcountry and ski mountaineering, and mountain biking.

Favorite Movie of all time?

Honestly, The Big Lebowski is probably it. I've seen it near 100 times and know it blind. Its a gem.

An exercise you have a love/hate relationship with?

As crazy as it sounds, running. I love it in the mountains but hate it on pavement. There are even many moments in the mountains when I find myself hating it and then in the same run hit this place where I feel amazing. Weird sport!
