I love to play outside. As a writer and gear tester for GearJunkie and Lola Digital Media, I get to play in the biggest sandbox with the best toys.
I submitted an article to Patagonia’s The Cleanest Line where I met a great mentor and editor, Mike Colpo. Mike graciously shared his time to help me hone my rough skills into a passion of storytelling.
My personal interests include Trail Running, Camping, Cycling, Skiing, Fly Fishing, Parenting.
