"So what are you working on now?"

I'm prepping for a panel discussion at the Colorado Governor's Tourism Conference, where I'll help destinations understand how to land coverage in national publications. Researching air travel strategies for a series of Outside articles. Putting the finishing touches on a pile of tent reviews for Backpacker's annual toy catalog (spring 2015 Gear Guide). Penning a feature profile on Olympic skier Mikaela Shiffrin for 5280 (February 2015).
