I'm a writer and editor reporting from the intersection of fitness and adventure. I have eight years' experience in journalism and digital storytelling for national publishing brands such as Yoga Journal, Men's Fitness, Outside, Shape, and Travel Channel. I cover gear, travel, fitness, wellness, and the outdoors.

I grow social media channels, direct and execute editorial & marketing strategies, and convert users across digital platforms to build business for big brands.

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.
