In my other life, I have been a freelance writer in the outdoor adventure industry for about five years. I write about whitewater rafting and camping (both with kids and without); public land stewardship and conservation; adventure sports; interview profiles; satirical outdoor essays.
My alter ego lives at www.roaringforkwriter.com
I have bylines in national, state and local print magazines such as National Ski Patrol Magazine, Elevation Outdoors Magazine, and Roaring Fork Lifestyle.
Check out a few of my favorites below, or visit my portfolio website for more.
