My name is Andrew, but my friends call me Ace. I'm a freelance writer in the outdoor industry and specialize in gear reviews, buying guides, and op. eds. on best practices essential to improving our outdoor experiences. My years of retail sales with The North Face, my background in English education, and a lifetime of outdoor adventures allow me to effectively speak to all audiences on subjects as complicated as ePTFE laminates and as a basic as layering for a day hike. I am currently seeking contract jobs for anything from writing product descriptions and educational information in public relations, to brand based marketing and advertising copy.
