Travel photojournalism ~ Outdoor industry ~ Editorial ~ Marketing ~ Book Publishing

I am a flexible, creative storyteller. Non-profit companies and small businesses use my work as a writer, editor, marketing consultant, and publisher for their business operations and marketing. I oversaw operations and content of a daily publication, Seattle Backpackers Magazine, as Editor in Chief and Director of Content. I have written a full length book chronicling a month-long environmental project in Nepal. That photojournalism project led to other non-profit, travel writing and photography work. I curate a collective of photographers who seek to tell everyday stories of life in their developing country, and have written for travel outlets and outdoor publications.

I have edited, ghost-written and/or published books including these:

The Poetry of Karen Waring Sykes – Collected by Robert Morthost

Song of Chomolungma – Author: Erika Klimecky

AC Sherpa- Autobiography

Marketing writing pieces have included:

Gear reviews for footwear, backpacks, outerwear and luggage,

Press releases
Product guides, event announcements, specialty item comparisons, and Christmas shopping guides for your favorite outdoors enthusiast.

My travel writing and photo stories include:
