I climb and travel because it is what I love. It gives me purpose and direction in life, it motivates me, and inspires me. Telling the story and trying to capture the photos that show the emotion and excitement of these places is something I love to do. These are a few photo essays of some of my favorite moments and biggest accomplishments. Most of the photos are my own, but there are times when my focus is on the task at hand, I have been lucky to have partners and friends who were there to capture the moment.
