I run with a crew called the Static Dinos. We’re an informal group of friends that have grown closer through mountain biking, rock climbing, skiing, and generally adventuring through this incredible world and all of its natural beauty.

My fiance is with me much of the time and I could not be where I am today without her enduring support, incredible patience, and delectable trail snacks.

Whenever we can we also try to get my son out of the house and into the wild. It’s hard to balance the demands of a domestic life with adventure and exploration, and I feel that it is worth it every time.
