About

I am a writer and a climber based in Gardiner, NY. 

I specialize in marketing content for the outdoor industry. I write consumer catalogs, website content, workbooks, ads, blog posts, captions, you name it.  Clients have included: Black Diamond, Marmot, Marker, Buff, Sterling Rope, Outdoor Research, Patagonia, Mountain Hardwear and Rock and Snow, among others. 

Since 2005, I have been a contributing editor with Rock and Ice magazine and have bylines in numerous national print publications and various online publications. To see these and other writing samples, go to the Work page.

I have been rock climbing for 14 years. As my passion, it has taken me to amazing places in numerous countries.  I am very grateful to my sponsors—Black Diamond, La Sportiva and Sterling Rope—for their support.
