As a newspaper reporter and now as a freelance writer, Christopher Solomon has eaten the blubber cut from a freshly-killed whale, been shot at by riot police in the WTO-crazed streets of Seattle, helicopter-skied from the back of a 200-foot megayacht and chased sunken treasure within sight of New York’s Empire State Building. His ability to vividly sketch a scene, and his passion for writing about passionate people, has led him to his frequent work for Outside magazine, the New York Times and Ski magazine, among other publications. His work also appeared in the anthology The Best American Travel Writing 2006. He lives in Seattle, but is constantly cajoling editors to send him elsewhere.
