A full-time freelancer based in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, I’ve spent the past 20 years writing for national, regional and custom magazines, covering outdoor sports, travel, innovators, athletes, gear, food, and the environment. Profiles are my specialty: Two of those became Maggie Award finalists, and my projects now include book-length biographies and ghostwriting. Though I’m primarily a wordsmith, I can also shoot accompanying photo elements that create multi-media packages. My work has appeared in AFAR, The Red Bulletin, Outside, 5280: The Denver Magazine, Departures, Travel + Leisure, Sunset, Runner’s World, Backpacker, National Geographic Traveler, Outside Business Journal, Vail/Beaver Creek Magazine, and many others.
I meet deadlines, which means I spend a lot of time at the computer. But living in the mountains also puts the outdoors at my doorstep, and I take daily advantage as an avid skier (resort, backcountry and Nordic), mountain biker, hiker, fly-fisher, yogini and gardener. Most of my days are dictated by the weather forecast, and my favorite capers involve my 11-year-old daughter.
