THE STUDIO MANAGERDiane Ortega Diane got her start with Touchstone at Pipeworks in Sacramento in June of 2005. She was hired to facilitate their awesome summer camp program and smoothly transitioned into working behind the front desk. She came to Sacramento from Chico, where she attended Chico State and graduated with a Bachelors in Political Science. Diane made the move to San Jose after receiving the management position and is loving the South Bay! She enjoys climbing, backpacking, bowling and pretending that she can mountain bike.
IANIan is a young gentleman who hails from the lands of Los Angeles. Ian picked up climbing when he started college and has been steadily increasing the amount of time he spends on the wall. When not climbing he enjoys producing music, playing video games, or just kicking back with friends and family.
aka Rem-a-lem aka Remzters aka little Rem-Rem is a part-salt part-desert creature shark expert by proxy. Since graduating from San Jose State, she spends most of her time climbing or sailing or sipping cognac or other super fun Californian things with her hunka happa love, Paul (the real shark expert). Named after Remington Steel and Remy Martin, “Remy” is actually a CB handle that caught on while working at Maker Faire Bay Area and interviewing shark researchers at Moss Landing. Hobbies include drinking whiskey, playing darts, chasing wild turkeys, letting owls do things to her car, trapping humming birds on accident, bathing in ginger beer (just kidding she just drinks a lot of it), evading mercury poisoning, eating lots of raw tuna (it’s a constant personal battle), beach combing in her backyard that is a beach, throwing knives (she’s not that good yet) and generally being a wannabe post-apocalyptic pirate. Her next big trip is to South Africa to send the Rocklands and swim with bull sharks in the Indian Ocean with her boo.
A bubbly bright eyed gal, from Newark, CA. Started climbing the summer of 2012, hasn't looked back since! Graduated from CSU Monterey Bay with a Bachelor of Arts in Film & Production. Crushes the wall! Will be heard responding to the nickname Crabby, (thanks to route setter Charles Padilla) and Toby! Enjoys climbing the most, but can be found dancing, singing, painting, and making short films in her free time!
This summer child was born and raised in the dry hills of San Jose. Since he found out he could wear flip-flops year round, he's done it. He enjoys the simple stuff like pretending he owns shoes, reading batman, going bouldering, hanging out with friends or family, or occasionally buying art supplies and acting like he's an artist.
