Expertise Description

I have over 10 years of climbing gym experience with expertise in safety, risk management, belaying, how to fall, how to catch a fall, how to put on a harness, how all equipment in the gym works, and the basic rules and etiquette of climbing gyms for both adults and children. I am offering my services as a climbing gym expert witness.

Areas of Expertise


Professional Experiences

I have been climbing since 2007, and working in climbing gyms since 2008. I have worked for multiple gyms, giving me a much broader wealth of knowledge of procedures, 
and best practices.

I have spent most of my time as a belay instructor. Belay instructors teach new climbers the basics 
of safety and risk management. We teach people which knots to tie, how to tie them, and why. We teach people how to man the rope for their climbing partner (belaying), how to fall, how to catch a fall, how to put on a harness, how all equipment in the gym works, and the basic rules and etiquette of climbing gyms. I have spent almost a decade as a gym employee, and have visited over three dozen climbing gyms, in preparation for becoming a gym owner myself.
