A picture may be worth a thousand words, but give me a thousand words and I'll tell the entire story. 

I am a freelance writer attracted to tales of adventure, nature conservation and self-propelled exploration. I contribute regularly for: Sidetracked Magazine (UK), BASE Magazine (UK, Mountain Life Magazine (CAN), NRS Duct Tape Diaries (US), Coast Mountain Culture (CAN) and Paddling Magazine (CAN).

I have written for Teton Gravity Research, and And I have done multiple podcasts for The Dirtbag Diaries.
Former editor of
Kayak Session Magazine and previous staff writer for Paddling Magazine (formerly Rapid Magazine).  


I split my time between British Columbia’s coast mountains and Slovenian’s Soča River valley. I am a cinnamon bun connoisseur, whitewater kayaker, river conservationist, sushi chef and trail runner. I also manage communications for two nature conservation projects - one based in the Balkans and the other in the Caucasus.


I am available for freelance assignments or communications contracts, including communication coaching and website writing.
