Outdoor sports and travel are my specialties, but my far-ranging interests include gear, fitness, nutrition, food, culture, parenting, science, and the environment. Living in the mountains, I take daily advantage of the wealth of outdoor opportunities that surround me. Play is a big part of my lifestyle, but so is reliability: I’m a meticulous researcher and writer who delivers clean copy—on time.

"So what are you working on now?"

I'm showcasing Aspen, Colorado for Los Angeles Magazine (November 2016). Helping cabin-dwellers choose the right hiking boots for their backwoods adventures (Cabin Living, September 2016). Profiling two superstar mogul skiers for Vail/Beaver Creek Magazine (holiday 2016). Rhapsodizing about Namibian oysters for Afar (May 2017). Reviewing the best kids' bicycles for OutsideOnline.com. Researching a retrospective about on-the-run fueling (Runner's World, November 2016). And starting most mornings by casting flies into the Yampa River (my version of a Maxwell House moment).
