Worldly adventurer, passionate writer and rock climber living out of his 9 year old Ford Econoline. British born and raised, he juggles his life between the granite rich mountains of Boulder, CO and the virgin limestone of Monterrey, Mexico. When he's not training in the gym, he can be found chugging copious amounts of coffee and searching for the next big adventure.
