This site is primarily devoted to my longtime hobby of alpine climbing. I learned to climb in Washington State, and moved to Munich in 2006 to explore the Alps. I enjoy the mountain activities so much that I’ve obsessively recorded them since the very first climb in 1997.
Occasionally I write on my blog about music, metaphysics, politics, books, or family strolls through the Englischer Garten. We live in Lehel, a quiet neighborhood just outside the Innere Ring, and love our local pizzerias, bakery and Thursday Kuchen Markt. My wife Kris and our two boys are also active in olympic weightlifting. She is also a master spinner.
