Hi. I’m Gloria.

I’m a freelance journalist based in Golden, Colorado.

Previously, I was the Features Editor for Outside Magazine, and before that, I edited features at BICYCLING and Runner’s World. As a writer, two of my features have been recognized as Best American Sports Writing notables, and my stories have also won a FOLIO award for Best Profile and a National Arts and Entertainment Journalism award. As an editor, I’m a proud member of the team that earned Outside a National Magazine Award nomination in 2021 for Digital Storytelling, and BICYCLING two NMA nominations in 2018, including a nomination for General Excellence in the Special Interests category. My stories have also appeared in Men’s Health, Women’s Health, The Red Bulletin, Condé Nast Traveler, Lonely Planet, 5280, BIKE, and other publications. I’ve written about a wide range of topics, from grief and love, to the simple yet life changing act of walking, to a motorcycle racer who’s disrupting the status quo.

In a past life, I worked in digital marketing and financial services.
