Causes I care about:
Water, air quality and protection of open space are all issues that concern me and that I care about. I am also extremely passionate about supporting local farmers and local food.

Do you collect anything?

I like collecting guidebooks from all the areas I travel to for climbing. I have a decent sneaker collection. I am a pretty big beer geek and I am always hunting for the next cool beer I haven’t tried. It’s kind of like a collection but then I drink them so…

What is your most unusual talent?

I am really good at knee barring. I can make perfect soft boiled eggs.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?

Swimming in the ocean. There’s sharks and jellyfish and all sorts of crazy stuff in there!!!

Why do you like working with Gnarly?

Gnarly has always maintianed a commitment to creating awesome products, from high quality ingredients that really work and then trying to improve upon what they have done. I have always been impressed by this pursuit of excellence.

Outside of your respective sport, what are you most proud of?

I have created a number of original cocktails through my years as a bartender. I’m pretty proud of some of them. I was pretty stoked to graduate from The Colorado College.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Duck Confit. A bacon egg and cheese sandwich.

Who is your hero? Why?

Anyone who is dedicated to the pursuit of a life of passion and compassion.

Any advice for aspiring athletes?

Train hard today, but do it for tomorrow, next week, next year…Mastery is a road with no end.

I recommend…

Performance Greens – My new favorite. It’s a great dietary supplement and has real performance benefits and it all comes from real food. Whey (chocolate) – I keep pretty busy and go pretty hard and often times I don’t get the protein I need to rebuild and repair. Gnarly whey gives me an excellent supplement to the protein I get from real food. And It just tastes so good!! Pro tip: Mix up a scoop with almond milk before bed for the best treat ever that’s also good for you!
