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 newsletters, including:
L.A. Times, The Surfer’s Journal, Dirt Rag Magazine, Cranked (UK), Adventure Sports Journal, Bicyclist Magazine, Snowshoe Magazine, Mountain Flyer, Strung Magazine, Spoke Magazine (NZ), Bike Magazine, Roads & Kingdoms, Bicycle Times, Switchback, and XXC Mag.
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 is 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.
