    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 hiking apparel and profiling ski and snowboard manufacturer Season Eqpt for Outside, reviewing superwarm gear for Steamboat Magazine (ski edition '22'23), analyzing the recent explosion of high-end kids' gear for Outside Business Journal, describing the world's most delicious Nordic ski destination for Cross-Country Skier, and foraging for porcini and chanterelles in the mountains around home.
