I’m a journalist reporting from the intersection of fitness and adventure. I also grow digital followings for big brands across platforms. Most of all, I love creating meaningful content for passionate consumer audiences.

I’m a trail runner, snowboarder, and angler. I love the mountains, catching trout, and of course, traveling every chance I get. I like to follow amazing people around the world and tell their stories.

I have eight years of experience writing, editing, optimizing and promoting digital content for national magazines—namely YogaJournal.comMensFitness.comOutsideOnline.comShape.com and TravelChannel.com. I cover all aspects of adventure travel, the outdoors and fitness. You can view my LinkedIn profile here, see my recent work here, and read up on some of my award-winning campaigns here

I’ve written and reported for VICE, CBS Travel correspondent Peter Greenberg, International Musician, Making Music magazine, The Huffington Post, Oyster.com, The Mayo News, The Daily Orange, and several other print and digital publications.

I live in Colorado, and sometimes abroad—my expat homes are scattered around the world: Ireland, England, Italy, Puerto Rico, and Spain.

All told, this website is a mix of my portfolio and travel stories. For updates, follow me on Instagram  @patty_hodapp. Reach me via pattyhodapp at gmail.com.
