Award-winning writer and editor on people, places and lifestyles in Colorado and the Rocky Mountains

For the past couple of decades I've covered Colorado. As a writer and senior features editor for The Denver Post, I interviewed everyone from Michelle Obama to Muslim beauty blogger Nura Afia. 

I am now a contributing editor to Mountain Living Magazine and am always on the hunt for a great story. Contact me about writing, editing and moderating events.
