lived in the great state of New Mexico for about five years now,
having been born and raised in the snow and ice of Wisconsin. I
moved here because of LANL. Not that I work there (my wife
does). I actually work as the Bookstore Manager at Bandelier
National Monument (where I have been employed since moving to
NM). It is a fantastic job, as it allows me to get out and hike
on my lunch breaks!
is in geology, having received my BA in the subject from
Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. While growing up and living
in Wisconsin, I paddled hundreds of miles via canoe across the
state and in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota/Canada. However,
due to a lack of abundant surface water (and a canoe), I have
taken to hiking and backpacking since moving west.
this, I am a newbie when it comes to climbing. I am a proud
graduate of the class of 2008 LAM Climbing School. I really enjoy
the sport and have been trying to fit in as much climbing as my
schedule will allow.
