I am a journalist based in Colorado, raised in the Green Mountains in Vermont.

My work has been published in The Washington Post, The Guardian, The New York Times, Slate, and Vogue. I'm a senior writer at the Mountain Gazette magazine, for which I write athlete profiles and essays about outdoor culture and environmental issues.

I wrote the cover story for Mountain Gazette 198 about a famous skier who mysteriously vanished from the limelight. For issue 199, I wrote the closing feature about five-year-olds with dreams of rodeo stardom, and for issue 200, I wrote about a venture-backed biotech startup making skis. I have also written stories at the intersection of technology and policy and reported on gun violence and wildfires.

My writing has been recognized with a Young Reporter Award from the International Sports Press Association and several other honors. I have a bachelor's degree in political science from Tufts University and a master's in journalism from NYU.
