Biography

blue underline

I began climbing as a child (5 years old) with my dad and older brother. We spent a ton of time climbing all around the world seeing new areas and meeting new people. Once the indoor scene started up in Canada, I was able to focus a lot more on climbing and got really into doing competitions. I competed for most of my youth and a lot of my adult life until I grew frustrated with the weird ass style comps started having ("world cup style"). I quit comps and started pursuing more heavily my outdoor passion for climbing. I primarily sport climb and boulder. Over the years I have become one of the top rock climbers in Canada. I love the hard movement and challenge of sport climbing and bouldering, there is nothing like it! In spring 2017 I opened my own bouldering gym in Calgary. This has become a huge part of my life and I look forward to seeing where this road takes me.


Q & A

blue underline
  1. How did you get involved with your respective sport?: I started climbing as a kid with my family. We spent all of our time traveling the world finding new areas to climb.
  2. Who were your influences early in life?: Probably Lev Pinter and Sonnie Trotter, these two dudes were legends and I learned a lot from them as a kid.
  3. What draws you to the outdoors?: I love a challenge, whether it's a hard route or just trying to go climbing in Feb in Canada with 5 feet of snow on the hike.
  4. What do you like about SCARPA as a brand?: SCARPA is dope. SCARPA has created a lineup of shoes that I have never seen matched. I like that SCARPA is involved and psyched on so many elements of the outdoor industry, it's cool being on the same team as bad ass skiers and mountaineers.
  5. Why do you trust SCARPA products?: Italian made! Nuff said.
  6. What gets you out of bed on big days?: Straight psyche. I love it. I love the mountains, and I love climbing.
  7. What is your best excuse for skipping training?: I don't skip training. If I try, I punish myself with a harder workout.
  8. Favorite recovery/apres beverage?: Wine. It's good for the soul
  9. If you had a baseball walkup song, what would it be?: I am not a big music guy. I would roll up in silence and freak people out.
  10. What's the last movie that made you cry?: Marley
  11. What's your dream trip or expedition?: I have done most of my dream trips but I think next in line is a bouldering trip in Auz.
  12. What makes a good adventure partner?: Someone I can trust and someone who works just as hard as me.
  13. Two truths and a lie: My middle name is Tree. I won a World Cup. I am Canadian
