Rock Climbing

I started rock climbing through Boy Scouts, then it became a hobby. I've climbed at Umstead, Moore's Wall in Hanging Rock, and I've climbed rope routes at Pilot Mountain.

I have one sister, who is currently in her senior year at ECU. My mother is a teacher, and my father works in the State Department of Revenue.

Boy Scout

After seven years of hard work, I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. Through Boy Scouts, I have had many oppurtunities many have not had, ranging from backpacking in New Mexico to sleeping on a frozen lake in Minnesota.

Bass Player

I started playing bass just to jam with my friends, but I enjoyed it enough that I now play in the school jazz band, as well as still jamming with my friends.
