“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
– Howard Thurman
I have been writing since I was seven years old and running for almost as long. Currently, I am an editor at REI and a contributing editor (formerly associate editor) at Trail Runner magazine.
My writing and photography have also appeared in Outdoors NW, Paste, Outside Online, Red Bull Adventure, the REI Co-op Journal, iRunFar, RootsRated, Gear Institute, Run the Alps, and Trail Run Project. Keep in touch by subscribing here on Tiny Letter.
When I’m not storytelling, I can be found running mountain trails, skate skiing, snowboarding, riding my Swiss Bob sled, doing yoga, spending time with my family, reading books, journaling, cooking, baking, drinking dark boozy beer, or striking up enthusiastic conversation with strangers.
I live in the mossy, fern-laden paradise that is the Pacific Northwest.
