    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 running apparel for Runner's World (March and May 2016), and kids' hiking gear for Backpacker (spring 2016 Gear Guide). Compiling the holiday Gift Guide for gearinstitute.com. Penning travel articles on Steamboat Springs, Cheyenne, and Cortez for Sunset (May and July 2016). Exploring the roots of authentic Oaxacan chiles for Travel + Leisure. And squeezing in as much bike-riding as I can before snow stops me!
