I travel and write for national publications. I'm Minnesotan at heart, Coloradan by zip code. I fish, snowboard and love a good campfire. Here's my story. 


Have an interesting piece of gear for review or travel press release to share? Shoot me a note, and follow me on social media for news and updates. 


I'm a journalist, digital media strategist, and big-brand storyteller. All told, this website is a mix of my professional and personal interests. Get in touch.
