Professional/Personal Overview
  Vermont-based writer, copywriter and editor with 16 years experience on staff at major national magazines (including Time and Men's Journal) and Salt Lake Olympic Winter Games; now, skiing, adventure, fitness and health are my specialties. Wrote the book 101 Outdoor Towns (Countryman, 2007); published in The New York Times, National Geographic Adventure and Men's Journal. Limitless energy, impeccable research and fact-checking skills, plus an editor's mind for thoughtful, funny and accurate prose and copy, always on deadline. Free sledding, the Adirondack luge club, ice climbing, snowkiting, sailing the Great Salt Lake, cross-country skiing, kayaking, running and hiking with the youngest person to bag the Seven Summits are among some of my stories.
