After taking courses in rock climbing, paddling, and skiing, including a semester with the International Wilderness Leadership School, he graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Expeditionary Studies.These years would take him on climbing trips all over the United States and Mexico.
Afterwards, he worked in Alaska as a rock climbing and mountaineering guide before moving to Alta, Utah to ski the winter season. Shortly after moving to Utah, he visited Moab and fell in love with its endless climbing options.
