Born and raised in LA, most of my climbs take place in the San Gabriel Mountains. From time to time, I'm able to get away and head up to the Sierras, and I have several future climbs planned in the Cascades and Rockies as well.

I plan on creating a website dedicated to photos taken on my trips, but for now some of them are posted on Flickr:
