In 2005, I published my very first article — a story about hiking — in the Anchorage Press. That turned into a weekly outdoors column that lasted about five years before ballooning into a deal for a hiking guidebook, a stint as the nationwide hiking/backpacking expert for About.com, and intensive outdoors reporting for a number of Alaskan and national publications.
What makes me special as an outdoors writer? I “walk my talk,” seizing every chance I get to hike, bike, fish, climb, paddle and just generally enjoy the giant outdoor playground that is Alaska. And I think readers can tell. Click the images below to see some examples of my recently published outdoors work.
