"I grew up on the Seacoast of New Hampshire where I got to enjoy the beautiful, but cold, Atlantic Ocean as well as the White Mountains. My love for the outdoors started when I was very young. You would always find me outside whether it was climbing trees, catching frogs, riding bikes, or just being outside for the fun of it. I always looked forward to our family camping trips up in the White Mountains; right off the Kancamangus Highway to be exact. Those by far are some of my favorite childhood memories. I went to college in Burlington, Vermont where I picked up my love for climbing (and became a true hippy J). Even though I love New England the west was always calling. Right after graduating I moved out to Salt Lake where I have fallen in love with the endless amount of outdoor fun."
