A writer, editor, and mountain guide living in Seattle, Washington.
When I’m not writing, I work for International Mountain Guides, where I lead climbing, mountaineering, and hiking expeditions around the world. I’ve guided in North and South America, Europe, Alaska, Patagonia, and Nepal. I’m a Wilderness EMT, a Leave No Trace (LNT) Trainer, and hold Level 2 certification with the American Institute for Avalanche Education and Training (AIARE). I recently became an extra class ham radio operator.
On my bucket list: A global circumnavigation on a sailboat with Huckleberry, my dog. The ability to bake the perfect popover. A winter in Bali. The perfect sports bra. An up-close underwater encounter with a manatee. The skills, time, and materials to build myself a cabin. A hug from the Dalai Llama.
