After four years of dedicated desk service, Pete became The Studio’s manager in 2018. When Pete isn’t working at The Studio, he uses his free time to climb and hang out at The Studio. Pete has an insane collection of Vans, seriously, look down – you’ll never see the same color or pattern twice in a row. On the off chance he ISN’T at The Studio, he hangs out at his South San Jose home doing freelance graphic & Web design, drawing and/or printmaking. Pete is also a Greater Boston native so on occasion he forgets to pronounce those pesky ‘aahhs’.
ChrisDesk StaffChris got his start in climbing the summer of 2016 when he first walked into The Studio. With no prior climbing knowledge, he quickly became addicted to the sport and has tried to spend every day since building on his new passion. In his free time, Chris is easily recognizable climbing in the gym or just hanging out waiting for the next great adventure. When not found in the gym he is typically shredding the trails with his Church of Dirt buddies, so if ever you’re looking to ride the trails or need beta on a climb come check him out at The Studios front desk!
Seven years ago Jason found climbing by way of backpacking and mountaineering…now it’s pretty much all he does and he’s never looked back! Jason has been working at The Studio since 2017 and really enjoys teaching, sharing beta, and helping new climbers learn to love climbing and crush at it! Don’t hesitate to say hi if you see him in at the front desk or in the climbing area.
