Outdoor Writing Portfolio

I believe in the written word. It’s a powerful tool to shape narratives, tell stories, and educate. It’s one of the reasons I’ve loved writing for about half of my life. As an outdoor enthusiast with years of experience under my belt in hiking, backpacking, and traveling, I bring a unique perspective and voice to my articles. I believe my casual yet lively tone helps readers feel like they’re experiencing a trip with me. This connection to the reader is what I live for and motivates me to continue writing and telling stories. Below you’ll find my outdoor writing portfolio. 

If you’re interested in having me write and take photos for your website, magazine, or publication, please email [email protected]
