My dream as a journalist has always been to pursue investigative reporting and I am excited when I get the opportunity to do thoroughly researched features. I find it deeply satisfying to bring these stories to life. For example, I reported a story for Pacific Standard about domestic violence along the Keystone XL pipeline in North Dakota. Such stories are arduous and I can’t do them every day, but they are the projects that keep me inspired to do this job.
From day to day, I write about a variety of topics — anything from improving your bike fitness to choosing the best beer for summer. I’m currently the food and drink columnist for Outside Magazine and I’ll be honest: I love food. My work at Bicycling and Runner’s World combines my interests in journalism with my long-standing passions of running, cycling and triathlon.
I am always looking for new opportunites and I am most interested in working on editorial features for both print and online media. If you have other writing projects in mind, feel free to reach out, but know that my priority remains editorial and reporting projects.
Here is a selection of my work.
I was very glad to see my hometown of Knoxville, TN listed in the top 50 Best Bike Cities in America article. In the article, you mention that the city created mountain biking trails within riding distance of town. Our trail system was actually created with thousands of volunteer hours by the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club (AMBC). We will be celebrating 11 years of building trails in Knoxville this coming November 3rd with our annual Fall Fest. Approximately 2000 mountain bikers will enjoy guided rides, a silent auction, live music, cold beer and a late night outdoor silent disco. It’s a pretty spectacular event We’d love to host you if you have any interest in covering an amazing event!
