    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 exploring off-trail in Utah's Grand Gulch for 5280 (May 2015). Revealing Colorado's mushroom stashes (and the chefs that exploit them) for Inspirato. Disclosing my favorite campgrounds for Sunset (May 2015). Reviewing apparel for Backpacker (June 2015). And chasing my four-year-old daughter, who's been exhibiting even more passion for skiing than I do.
