About Me

Over the course of my career, I’ve been a local newspaper reporter, a fact checker, a gear tester, a managing editor, an intern wrangler, a features writer, an online editor, a copywriter, a filmer, a photographer, and more. I’ve written about erupting volcanoes in Iceland, snowboarding in Nepal, and a controversial skate park in Watts. I’ve interviewed Dr. Ruth, Laird Hamilton, and Olympic gold medalists.

I’ve worked as an editor at Outside magazine, Skiing magazine, and ESPN.com. I once won a world championships in telemark freeskiing. Now, I'm a freelance writer, based in Tahoe City, California. I write regularly for publications like Powder, Outside, ESPN, Men's Journal, and more. I also started and run a coworking space in Tahoe for freelancers and start-ups (check that out www.tahoemill.com). Thanks for checking out my work.

I am also available for copy writing and copyediting work. For examples of my writing for clients like Flylow, Red Bull, REI, Ortovox and more, please see my commercial work here
