I’m a writer, editor, and mountain bike racer (#projectfullenduro). Currently, I’m the features editor at BICYCLING Magazine, based in Emmaus, Pennsylvania.
In a past life, I worked in finance—until 2010, when I quit my job to spend a ski season in New Zealand. Chasing winter brought me to Colorado, which eventually brought me to the bike industry, and when I turned 30, I went all-in on my childhood dream of being a journalist. As a freelancer, I did online work for Outside, Condé Nast Traveler, BIKE, Slowtwitch, and other publications, and eventually—while I was spending a summer mountain biking and writing in Chamonix, France—landed at BICYCLING as the magazine’s full-time gear editor. That’s the quick backstory.
In addition to my published work, this site is a home for the creative writing I do that might not really fit anywhere else, but still brings me joy to share.
