Kieran Sullivan is from the southwest. Growing up surrounded by dry desert rock, he has committed his free time to exploring places ranging from desert towers in Arizona and Utah to Alpine rock in Colorado and New Mexico. In addition to his love for climbing, he has spent summers working as a whitewater raft guide, as well as a professional sailing instructor. He currently breaks up the year by working as a ski Patroller in the winter and a mountain guide in the summer.

It should also be noted that Kieran in an avid ecologist with a love for the natural world, and he loves sharing that knowledge with other people.
