Blend up a love for people, a sense of adventure, and a conviction to tell tales and you’ve got yourself a woman who will run to the top of a mountain to get a story. That’s me.

My body of work includes stories on just about everything ­– from skiing in the untouched mountains of Kyrgyzstan and Chilean national fùtbol champs to hanging out with the Wu-Tang Clan at Sundance. 

I began my career writing and editing at publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Outside, Rolling Stone, Vice, Men’s Journal, Complex, and New York Magazine. 

When not putting my name on an editorial byline, I've spent time in front of the lens and on the teams of campaign and branding initiatives.
My commercial work includes
scripting/story editing
VO-ing/talent-ing (inhales)
for brands such as Merrell, Gregory Mountain Sports, Intrepid Travel, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Nike, Columbia Sportswear, and OPI.

Randomly: I've also appeared on several television and radio talk shows, walked dogs in NYC, and was casted for Survivor.
Life’s weird.
