#nuunbassador

17Jan17

I am super excited to announce that I have been selected as a nuun ambassador for the 2017 season! nuun has been my go-to hydration solution since I started running a few years ago, and I’m honored to promote a product that has helped me through so many long runs. And I’m looking forward to […]


Seeing the photos of the American Climber Science Program’s expedition this summer has really bummed me out. Reasons? 1. I’m not there. 2. The glaciers are gone. Not just a little bit, but completely and drastically different. So I grabbed pics from this year’s crew and compared them to my last trip in 2013. Let’s […]


I have to admit, I thought the wearable sleeping bag thing was ridiculous when they came on the market a year (or so) ago. It just looked hokey. Definitely not a “real” sleeping option. BUT, when I had the opportunity to try out a Selk’Bag Patagon for the #EpicDangerRoadTrip, I was intrigued enough to say […]


The past few months I have been posting gear reviews and snippets of stories about a rather epic road trip with my good friend Stuart Peck over the summer. Now I can share the whole story! We pitched a story idea to a great regional magazine about the most dangerous hikes in the lower Appalachians and […]


In this week’s review, I look at a pair of bottles from AVEX Sport for all your hydration needs. First up is the AVEX Brazos Autoseal Water Bottle. This 25-ounce BPA-free bottle has all but replaced another-name-brand bottle for me as I head outdoors every weekend. The Brazos has a narrower profile, so it sits in […]


I had high hopes of producing a video review of the gear Stu and I had the opportunity to test out during our #EpicDangerRoadTrip in June, but suffice to say, I do much better behind the camera than in front of one. So a static review will have to do… trust me! I will finish […]


My good friend Stuart and I embarked on a quest to search out and explore some of the most dangerous hikes and trails in the Blue Ridge Mountain area of the Appalachians last week for Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine. We traveled to Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia & Kentucky and found a couple of the toughest […]

  Relationships are at the core of just about everything on earth, from your neighbors to who you tie-in with on the sharp end of a climb. And these relationships are invaluable… and the effort it takes to build these relationships is often a mammoth undertaking, which makes the end result even more special. I […]


  Your hardshell jacket is one of the most important layers when you head to the mountains. It is your security blanket when things get nasty. It is your protection from the elements. To this end, the Maximus Jacket from Outdoor Research does not disappoint… at all. This was the one piece I hoped I […]


Peru 2013

15Jul13

I just returned from my second summer with the American Alpine Club’s science research program in Peru, and I have finally edited a few photos! This year’s American Climber Science Program trip was fantastic. Everything went extremely well. I nabbed four summits over 5400m in four weeks and made some of my best pictures to […]
