I am a freelance journalist and essayist with an MA in Biography & Creative Nonfiction from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. My work speaks to the importance of empty, lonely places on the map. I also write about history, landscape, and travel.

At the moment, I’m writing about walking New Zealand’s 3,000 km Te Araroa Trail with my 67-year-old father, a five month journey that tested our physical and emotional limits. Along the way, I produced weekly articles, a 16-part web series, and newsletter. To read up on that project, click here.

You can also find me organizing events and marketing campaigns in Colorado. I’ve developed numerous multi-day events like Colorado Trail Days, the DGO Climbing Fest, and the Women Outside Adventure Forum by Backcountry Experience.

Home is a quiet place with an orange cat in the rural mountains of southwest Colorado. On any given day, my boyfriend and I are trail running, climbing, hiking, skiing, or sleeping under the stars.
