Hi. I’m Gloria.

I’m a writer, editor, and mountain bike racer. I’m also the features editor at BICYCLING Magazine and Runners World.

In a past life, I worked in finance. By 26, I was one of my firm’s youngest vice presidents. But that path never quite felt right. So after about five years, I quit my job to be a ski bum in New Zealand and Colorado. It was an experiment: What would it be like to do something I loved every day? 

I eventually ended up in a marketing job in the bike industry. But I always wanted to be a journalist. So I started freelancing full-time. I wrote for publications including Outside, Condé Nast Traveler, BIKE, and Slowtwitch. While I was spending a summer mountain biking in Chamonix, France, I landed a job at BICYCLING as the gear editor. Now I write and edit features of all kinds: long-form narratives, big service packages, interviews, and more. I’m proud to be part of the hardworking team that helped BICYCLING earn two 2017 National Magazine Award nominations.

I think I have just about the best job in the world, and I never take it for granted. Whether it’s a big story or a short sidebar, I try to do great work, and never phone it in.

If that sounds good to you, maybe we should make something cool together.
