I am a freelance writer, journalist, editor and adventurer based in Anchorage, Alaska. I love nothing more than meeting new people or seeing new places, then writing about what I’ve learned.

I’m the author of “Moon Alaska,” “50 Hikes Around Anchorage,” and the forthcoming “Day Hiking Southcentral Alaska.” I also co-authored “Alaska Adventures: a guide to exploring the Alaska wilderness,” served a stint as senior editor at Alaska magazine, and contribute to the outdoors section of the state’s largest newspaper, the Alaska Dispatch News. You’ll find my byline in magazines like Via, Backpacker, Natural Home and Gardens, The Writer, Last Frontier, Alaska, Breathe and Coast. 

I’ve edited everything from essays to books and blog posts, but I’ve always enjoyed the developmental editing side of things most of all; I love watching a new writer’s voice come to life. I’m also a proud member of the following professional organizations:


When I’m not working you’ll find me wandering the mountains, knee-deep in Irish music and dance, or trying out a new hobby. You can follow my adventures on my blog, or take a look at my portfolio.
