"So what are you working on now?"

I'm investigating Sun Valley's return to relevancy for Los Angeles Magazine (November 2014). Reviewing apparel for Backpacker (June 2014). Testing sports bras and researching the advantages of hot-weather running for Runner's World (August 2014). Going face-to-face with the world's rarest trout to understand what makes this little fish worth saving (for upcoming issues of 5280 and Mountain).
