    freelance writerI’m a freelance writer and photographer based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. 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 reviewing alpine ski boots and women's jackets for Outside (fall 2018 Buyer's Guide), writing about Capitol Reef National Park for 5280: The Denver Magazine (August 2018), testing fishing gear for Outside (September 2018), investigating wildlife poaching in Colorado for 5280 (October 2018), hunting for great women's outdoor products (for the women's gear column I contribute to Outsideonline.com), describing a perfect day in Jackson Hole for Los Angeles Magazine (November 2018), and riding my mountain bike. This summer's quest: Learning to manual.
