About Me

<p>The grim reaper feels ever closer with each passing day so I cannot afford to waste another minute. Climbing called me back after a 20 year career in corporate jobs, interesting jobs that took me all over the world but, in the end, they were just a means to an end. My youngest child goes off to college this summer and I get to schedule my life around my climbing seasons again. Spending more time outdoors reminds me where we all came from and climbing, well, it's the 'fountain of youth'. Keeps it real!</p>
