Writing about the Environment. Science. Travel. The Outdoors.
For nearly six years I was a reporter at the Seattle Times newspaper. Since mid-2002 I've been a freelance journalist, writing about everything from science, to skiing, to environmental issues, to athlete profiles. I'm a contributing editor at Outside and Runner's World magazines, and my work has appeared in publications ranging from the New York Times Sunday Magazine to Popular Mechanics, Scientific American, National Geographic, Ski, Men's Journal, Departures and others. I write frequently for the New York Times, including the Sunday Travel and Sunday Week in Review sections.
My writing has been selected seven times to appear in the anthologies The Best American Travel Writing, The Best American Sports Writing and The Best American Science & Nature Writing. In 2019 I was an Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellow.
When I'm not somewhere else, I'm in north-central Washington.
