    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 following Aspen chef Michael Beary as he hunts down rare Oaxacan chiles for Travel + Leisure. Reviewing running apparel and sports bras for Runner's World (May and August 2016). Penning travel articles on Steamboat Springs, Cheyenne, and Cortez for Sunset (May and July 2016). Investigating meditation's benefits for runners for Runner's World (April 2016). Singing Moab's praises for Los Angeles Magazine (January 2016). Describing a life-list trip through Westwater Canyon for 5280: The Denver Magazine (June 2016). And enjoying winter's return: Three cheers for cold snow!
