I’m a writer, editor, and mountain bike racer (see: #projectfullenduro). I’m also the features editor at BICYCLING Magazine.
In a past life, I worked in finance. I was pretty good at it—by 26, I was one of my firm’s youngest vice presidents. But I didn’t feel passionate about what I was doing. So after about five years, I quit my job to be a ski bum in New Zealand and Colorado, just to see what it was like to do what you love every day.
Cycling was another passion of mine, so I eventually chased the stoke all the way to a marketing job in the bike industry. But what I really always wanted to do was be a journalist. So when I turned 30, I went all in and started freelancing full-time. I wrote for publications including Outside, Condé Nast Traveler, BIKE, and Slowtwitch. While I was spending a summer mountain biking and writing in Chamonix, France, I landed a job at BICYCLING as the magazine’s gear editor. Now I write and edit stories of all kinds: long-form narratives, big packages, interviews, and service pages. I also plan the print lineup, and am proud to be part of the amazing team that helped BICYCLING earn two National Magazine Award nominations in 2017, including a nomination for General Excellence in the special interests category.
I think I have just about the best job in the world, and I never take it for granted. Whether it’s an edit or my own piece, a big story or a short sidebar, I never phone it in.
If that sounds good to you, maybe we should work together.
