While growing up in Illinois Gordon was a competitive gymnast. The sport of gymnastics was a perfect outlet for his adoration of movement and desire to perform. This affinity for movement has influenced all aspects of Gordon’s life. He moved to Boulder, Colorado to pursue a degree in Integrative Physiology and was logically drawn to rock climbing. The fluidity and control required for climbing, as well as the inspiring landscapes, captivate him. In his free time Gordon practices yoga, cycles, goes trail running, climbs, and enjoys the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
