In a broad sense, my work is about the outdoors and the places I love. Specifically, I write about the intersection of environmental science, the use and abuse of wild places, and where we go from here. Sometimes I write about history, such as the real King Macbeth or the first woman to raft the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. My work usually takes the form of creative nonfiction, journalism, and sometimes fiction or screenwriting.
My writing has appeared in Sierra, Nowhere, and Hinterland Nonfiction. “Going to Ground,” a personal essay about nature, homelessness, and Palo Duro Canyon, was nominated for The Best American Travel Writing 2020. In 2017, I earned my MA in Biography & Creative Nonfiction from the University of East Anglia, where I wrote about an 1,800-mile trek across New Zealand with my father.
I also manage communications and produce a podcast for Startup Colorado, an organization that fosters entrepreneurship in rural communities. On top of that, I organize the annual Women Outside Adventure Forum, a 3-day storytelling event in Durango, CO featuring athletes, writers, filmmakers, activists, and artists.
When I’m not in front of a screen, you can try to find me in the mountains or in the desert, on a bike or in a tent, up a cliff or on a snowy slope.
