Competitions have been an integral part of my climbing experience since I began climbing at age 11.

Soon after moving to Colorado, I won three American Bouldering Series National Championships in the 2004 season.

In the 13 years since, I have added more than 25 podium finishes in major U.S. bouldering competitions to my climbing resume.
