I am a free spirit and adventurer, having discovered both trail running and climbing in my mid-twenties while being an MBA student at Harvard Business School. I posed as a hardcharging strategy consultant for the first few years out of business school but turned my back on material possessions and a conventional career shortly after my 30th birthday. I have been on the road to run and climb full-time ever since.
My overarching passion is to be active and push my limits in the side- and backcountry, spanning a multitude of sports: ultra running, climbing (mainly big walls) and non-technical big mountain ascents as well as good old everyday adventures - ideally in the desert or the high country. Show me a place of beauty and solitude, throw in a bit of physical challenge, good company, and you can be sure that I’ll be excited to give it a go.
