I hail from Haddon Heights, NJ, a small town by Philadelphia. While I've always loved the outdoors, I didn't start tree climbing until going on the Redwoods Expedition as a sophomore. After that, I was hooked! My favorite thing to do up in the trees is find the perfect branch to lay down on and chill, it's awesome being 50 feet up and feeling the tree sway in the breeze! When I'm not tree climbing, I like to rock and ice climb, hang out with friends, and just have as much fun as possible!
