The Great Outdoors Blog Outdoor Nonfiction Writing


I have been working with words for more than a quarter century.

I sold my first articles in 1992 and began working in newspapers that same year. I wrote, edited and photographed my way from sports intern to the top of the masthead of daily and weekly newspapers, earning honors for column writing, in-depth reporting, investigative reporting, and spot news along the way. I left the newspaper industry in 2014 but I still work in publishing.

Throughout my professional journey, I have freelanced for local, state, regional and national publications.

I am available for assignments on outdoor topics.
