Hi. I’m Gloria.

I’m a journalist based in Boulder, Colorado, and the Features Editor for Outside Magazine.

As a freelance writer, I’ve been a writer at large for BICYCLING Magazine, and 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. 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. I write about a wide range of topics, from grief and love, to the psychology behind why we love getting big air, to the intersection of #MeToo and cycling, to the celebration of the wonderful outliers in our communities.

Previously, I was also the features editor at BICYCLING and Runner’s World. I’m a proud member of the team that earned BICYCLING two National Magazine Award nominations in 2018, including a nomination for General Excellence in the Special Interests category.

In a past life, I worked in digital marketing and financial services. In between these rather different career paths, I’ve worked at ski resorts in New Zealand and Colorado, became a certified scuba divemaster in Honduras, and spent a summer in the French Alps.
