“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. I am an editor for REI, a contributing editor for Trail Runner magazine, and the author of Beer Hiking Colorado.
My writing has also appeared in Uncommon Path, Outdoors NW, Paste, Outside Online, Red Bull Adventure, the REI Co-op Journal, iRunFar, RootsRated, Gear Institute, Run the Alps, and more. Keep in touch by subscribing here on Tiny Letter.
When I’m not storytelling, I can be found running or hiking in the mountains, 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’m not taking on any new freelance clients at the moment. If you want to give me a holler anyway, feel free to drop me a line or connect with me on Instagram or LinkedIn. I love hearing from people. (Do know that I try to keep my screen time at a minimum when I’m not at work, though, so no timely replies guaranteed.)
