Chemistry instructor at Clackamas Community College, by way of Vermont, France, The Gambia, Corvallis, and Bellingham. Native of Walla Walla, WA.

Began peak-bagging in the summer of 2010, immediately addicted. Focus is on P2K bagging in the lower 48, specifically the Oregon and Washington lists. Also chasing the lower 48 Ultras, with some interest in county prominence points and range high points.

Solid experience with alpine trad (lead 5.9), moderate experience with glacier travel. Always looking for buddies to get out bagging with.
