I've been working on pushing myself (it'd be easier if I was lighter) because I can't be complacent. Ive been trying to shoot different things, like rivers. I've also been trying to film more and just posted a video (link in bio) but I still have so many areas I need to push myself in. Oh well, work hard play hard.

Well, I got sick this weekend. I'm pretty sure it was a case of adventure fever. All I wanted to do was enjoy a dry, sunny day and go climbing. I am fighting through the fever this week because I have to go to school but the symptoms persist.

Well John, I think we learned the value of getting outside and having fun despite getting soaked in waist deep snow.

This picture has nothing to do with the video I just posted except they are both dope. Go check it out and let me knkw what you think. Link in bio.

Maybe some day I'll figure out how to capture something other than rocks, water, and the occasional person, maybe if they weren't all such dope things.

I'll be honest: I'm a thinker, always have been always will be. The two things that make me think the most are the mountains and stars. They both make me think of my place in the world; they remind me that I am so very small, that there is much more going on than my problems. They make me think about how beautiful everything is and howglad I am to be a part of it all.

BOOM! Just released my first video of the year and it features this handsome man. One of my goals this year is to get better at making videos by pumping out at least 2 a month and I would love if you guys came along for the ride. Link in my bio.

There I was, out in the mountains with @paka_reid just filming my first video of the year when all of a sudden we get distracted by this super dope bridge and I figuted "hey, might as well have some actual pictures of me on the gram". Thanks for letting me get in front ofthecamera for once parker. Also if you want to check out that video I was making it'll drop Wednesday.

As we are closing out the first week of the year I have had some time to come up with goals for this year. Some people don't like having resolutions, but for me I find that if I don't set goals I don't change. I also find that I need to share my goals with some people to legitimize them, so here is what I am shooting for in 2018. Let's get it!

Check out who is sliding, not into your DMs, but back onto your feed. That's right, I'm back. I took a hiatus from posting due to finals and wanting to enjoy home with friends but break time is done and I'm back on the grind. I'm getting real stoked for what's ahead, how about you?

Every picture has a story behind it. Mitch is the story behind this one. He is such a good friend that he decided to go climbing with me when it was near freezing and he hates the cold. Nonetheless, he dawned his 3 pairs of pants and 4 layers of shirts to come hang out with me and some people I hardly knew. This is only the iceberg of the story; it goes much deeper. It is because Mitch has been there for me through the most brutal times and the most blessed times that he was willing to go that fatefully chilly day. He is truly a great friend that loves in a way that so reflects the lover has been given. @mitch_canadianboi thanks for being the best (and looking like a stud, yes he is single).

Sometimes I wish that adventure didn't look so good because then I could be more productive but as soon as I get out there I am so stoked that adventure is everything it is cracked up to be and so much more

This is not what my adventure looked like today. I set out this morning to go do this incredible climb with some friends in an attempt to squeeze in one last climb before winter completely stops us. We thought we could shoot up it in no time and then maybe do another easy climb elsewhere. This was not the case. As soon as we get out of the car the wind is blowing like crazy. After our hike down we realize the wind is only worse where we climbed. We actually had to wait about half an hour for some people in front of us to try the climb, then give up and leave. In this time we all got real cold thanks to the wind and the freezing cold temperature. We probably should have taken the hint from them and not climbed but as young individuals so often do we went onwards and upwards. After finishing the first section of the climb I realized that the wind was continuing to get worse. This made climbing the second section near impossible but through sheer determination I was able to make it up safely (honestly a miracle) at this point everyone caught up to me. We were now halfway through the climb and oh boy was it cold and windy. I mean I couldn't feel my feet or my hands. I then began to climb the third section but after 10 feet of climbing I came to the conclusion that it was too risky and we all decided to bail on the climb, rappel down and hike back to the car. It was a messy, wild, and crazy day that did not go as planned but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

After spending almost every weekend for the past half a year in Squamish you would think I would get used to seeing this beautiful view but somehow it keeps astounding me.

I think this is my favorite picture I have ever taken partially because of how dope it looks and partially because it reminds me of the single most epic day of my life. Like all good days it started with a hearty breakfast of pancakes. This was followed by my friend flying me to Squamish. On the flight there I got to fulfill a life long dream of flying a plane (thanks Cole). After we landed I met up with Nic and we went to conquer our first multi-pitch climb. We got crazy lost on the way and wasted probably an hour trying to find it but once we got there we were blown away by this beautiful climb that was right next to the most crystal teal river you done ever saw. We stumbled up the wall trying to figure out how to do a multi-pitch climb and atthe end of the 4 hours on the wall we had done it. We didn't even make it to the final anchor but we felt secure where we were so we loaded up our gear and ran the last bit of the slopey climb. It was right next to a highwayand I can only imagine what drivers thought when they saw two shirtless guys who looked a little homeless but just stoked out of their minds. It was truly a day I won't ever forget.

Complacency corrupts one's quality of life. This is Sam. He is a great friend who is pretty good at bouldering. He decided to come out with me and do some outdoor climbing which he had never done. It was something that pushed him in new and different ways and by the end he was grateful for the challenge.this picture reminds me that when we want to see growth and change we need to get out of our comfort zones and try new things. Channeling our inner Sam is the only way to keep growing and avoid complacency.

Its funny how you get used to things. The world used to seem huge and everything seemed so distant yet now I live in Vancouver but feel like Denver is only a short trip away. When I was a kid going on an airplane was such a rare experience and now when I fly i almost dont think about how I am in a giant metal tube propelling itself through the air thousands of feet above the ground that relies on magic wings to keep it there. I guess what I am getting at is that we shouldn't take things for granted; just because something has become normal doesn't mean it isn't incredible.

I feel similar to this buffalo, he knows that things are about to get crazy andthat he needs to prepare to survive. In his case he is getting ready for the long cold winter, in my case I am preparing for the long hard semester; but we are both getting ready by eating a lot.
