With a deep background in the outdoors and a broad curiosity, I love writing both reported pieces and personal essays. My work has appeared in publications like: OutsideAdventure Journal, National Geographic Adventure, Bust, Climbing, Sidetracked, The American Alpine Journal, RANGE, Colorado Life, Elevation Outdoors, Utah Adventure Journal, Mountain Flyer and Freehub Magazine.

Here are a few of my faves:
