I'm a contributing editor at Outside and a contributing writer at The California Sunday Magazine. My journalism has also appeared in WIRED, Harper's, The Atavist, The New York Times MagazineMen’s Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, Popular Science, NewYorker.com, The Southern Review, and elsewhere. I've covered rodeo, coal miners, disaster response, environmental issues, pawn shops, and the worst minor league baseball team in America, among other topics. I was previously a senior editor at Outside, where I edited features and the front-of-book. My writing has been a notable selection in Best American Essays, Best American Sports Writing, and Best American Science and Nature Writing. I occasionally work as a lecturer at the University of Wyoming, a contract editor, and a musician.
