I am a writer based in the Colorado Rockies. In 2015, I received an MFA in Creative Nonfiction and Environment and Natural Resources from the University of Wyoming and also have a BA in Professional Writing and International Studies from Kutztown University of PA.

My writing has been published in Alpinist, Aspen Sojourner, Adventure Journal, Western Confluence, High Country News, Trail Runner, Rock and Ice magazines and more. I’ve received numerous creative grants and scholarships for my writing, including Honorable Mention in the Cutthroat Journal of the Arts Barry Lopez Nonfiction prize for my essay “Finding the Small Ones” on encountering shrinking glaciers in the continental U.S.

I offer freelance editing services for books, websites and marketing campaigns and currently serve as the editor-in-chief of the backcountry ski website WildSnow.com.
