Summary

Edit
I'm a word wrangler with a serious passion for The Great Outdoors. While I primarily cover backpacking, hiking, climbing, camping, gear reviews, and general adventuring, I also enjoy sharing travel stories, waxing poetic about food, nerding out on music, and inciting belly laughs.

In addition to more literary pursuits, I truly enjoy creating content for outdoor, travel, and adventure lifestyle brands. I also have extensive experience compiling, creating, and editing press releases, press kits, blog posts, biographies, blurbs, and other promotional materials for a variety of clients, tailoring my work and voice to the client’s specifications.

In addition to writing for a number of outlets, I just finished penning and photographing a badass guidebook to the Southern California section of the Pacific Crest Trail, which will be released in 2017 via Mountaineers Books.
