How does a native of Louisiana become a rock-climbing guide? A high-school rock wall, 12 years in the Marine Corps, 4 years in Arizona, 6 moves from Florida to Washington State to North Carolina, and Virginia, a realization that the world of corporate financial management isn’t all that exciting, and a very patient wife. I started climbing in high school and was hooked. After a multi-year hiatus due to the Marine Corps, I started climbing again when April and I relocated back to Virginia. I love everything about mid-Atlantic climbing and enjoy spending time on the rocks in Fredericksburg, at Mather’s Gorge, Seneca Rocks, and the New River Gorge. I received my instructor certification through the Professional Climbing Guides Institute (PCGI) and enjoy working with people in the vertical environment.
