I write and interview people about the outdoors (especially trails), conservation and the benefits of time in nature. I am interested in how people connect with the outdoors and how that influences wellness, happiness, communication + stewardship of the planet.

My work has been featured on The Trek, Patagonia, Osprey, Hut2Hut, the Pacific Crest Trail Association (PCTA), Out There Podcast and as a trail correspondent for Sounds of the Trail Podcast while thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT) and Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). Here’s my full professional profile.
