Causes I care about

Politics in sport, increasing representation in the outdoors, working with marginalized groups and creating spaces for open and honest communication.

Do you collect anything?

Canvas tote bags for holding all my snacks and books. I try and get a tote bag for every place special to me.

What is your most unusual talent?

Finishing 5-10 books all at the same time. It takes me a couple years but I slowly make my way through them.

What is the scariest thing you have ever done?

Onsight-solo FA’d a chossy tower in Peru. There was a moment when all I was holding on to were fistfuls of grass against a vertical wall thinking, “What would Cedar Wright do…??”

Why do you like working with Gnarly?

Gnarly is dedicated to creating not only high-quality products, but an outdoor culture that includes people from all walks of life.

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

Finishing my college degree after a looooooong break.

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

Noodles!!!

Who is your hero? Why?

My heroes are the people who balance work, families, and other life obligations while still getting after their passions. It’s tough to do everything well.

Any advice for aspiring athletes?

Inspire yourself. Be motivated from the inside, by your own vision. Set a big dream goal, then a few slightly smaller challenges, until you’re looking at one task for the day that will put you a step closer to the big dream.

I recommend…

The vanilla Vegan Protein for baking. The chocolate Vegan Protein for smoothies. And BCAAs for training!
