I am an independent writer, with numerous pieces having appeared in outdoor sports and recreation media outlets, adventure and travel magazines, newspapers, practitioners’ journals, and political zines, including:
Dirt Rag Magazine, Cranked (UK), Adventure Sports Journal, Bicyclist Magazine, Snowshoe Magazine, Spoke Magazine (NZ), Bike Magazine, Mountain Flyer, Roads & Kingdoms, The Surfer’s Journal, Bicycle Times, XXC Mag, and Switchback.
Currently, I am a columnist for Bicyclist Magazine (“In Search of Dirt”) and Adventure Sports Journal (“Earn Your Beer.”) In Search of Dirt features mountain biking and Earn Your Beer is about pushing yourself in the mountains, deserts, oceans, rivers, wherever and then sitting back and enjoying a beer when relaxing at camp or at home.
I have published 3 books: Go Here, Go There: Travel and Work, a collection of words and photos depicting such experiences in ten countries around West Africa, Central and South America, North America, and Eurasia. My two other books are based on my work and travels in Honduras and Ethiopia.
Several articles and writing samples are available under Portfolio in the menu bar up on the top right side of this page, where you can also enter the Blog for current postings.
