Work hard. Play hard. Rest. Repeat.


I seek out adventures and challenges, at work and at play. By trade, I am an award-winning journalist and writer, published author, crafty editor, artistic photographer and digitally-savvy content strategist. By passion, I'm a proud dad, mountain adventurer, ultra-distance trail runner, gentleman gardener, Ironman triathlete, skier, snowboarder and ski mountaineer. I chase trains, grow tomatillos, make fiery hot salsa, ascend high peaks, listen to vinyl records, wear-test running shoes and occasionally race donkeys. I have been honored to win several awards for my writing and publishing work and am grateful to have been inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame in 2015.
