Explorer of the Unexplored (really I just like to look around nature).
In my rather short caving time, I have caved in 18 states, joined the CRF and went on a ton of their expeditions, found a bunch of caves including one of the longest limestone caves in Washington, hiked forever, surveyed a lot, dug a bit (for safety), volunteered with the Gauntlet, climbed out of a 168 foot pit, ruined several pairs of shoes, was the first in a sketchy mystery pit, ignored a j-hang 600 feet up over a canyon, rappelled and surveyed a volcano and enjoyed every dirty moment of it.
John is a Capricorn who enjoys long crawls in the mud, cold water, and the lure of a black abyss. He is involved in several PA caving organizations and has been enjoying wild caves for 15 years.
Started caving in 2018 and have enjoyed all of my experiences underground although I do not get to cave as much as I'd like to. I have been a board member of the Out of Bounds Grotto since the start and was social media chair in 2022. I'd like to develop my vertical skills in the next couple of years. My day job is currently in real estate and legal but I also have a small business as a cake artist and enjoy making people's dessert dreams come true! I was heavily involved in the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation for many years and raised a lot of money for research towards a cure and have advocated on a state and national level for step therapy reform. I love what nonprofits can do for communities!
