climber

As an instructor, whether for rock climbing trips or extended wilderness expeditions, I value group outdoor experiences as opportunities to grow self-awareness, learn effective communication, and practice interdependence.

A relationship-centered facilitator, I emphasize reflection and curiosity around the complexities of history, place, and identity.

My work and recreation as a climber and instructor is entangled with the violent displacement of people from what has been designated “public lands.” The photos above were taken on lands which I understand to be first and currently stewarded by: Amah Mutsun Land Trust, Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation, and the Kashia Pomo Indian Tribe.
