Brief Bio

The author in Wire Pass canyon

I am, among many other things, a free-lance writer living in Phoenix, (with wife/kids/pets/mortage/etc) when not spending the night in a hammock strung in some random portion of the national forest. I have written articles for numerous local magazines and a handful of national ones, covering sports, fitness, outdoor activities, theatrical stagecraft and the inside guts of buildings. My book, Day and Overnight Hikes in the Tonto National Forest comes out from Menasha Ridge Press in November 2008.

My other websites:

Phoenix Camping Examiner – a regular column about camping and campsites in Arizona

Are We Lost Yet? – a blog about hiking and writing hiking guides.

What Have We Learned? – my personal blog covering my many, random interests, and what I learn pursuing them.

Phoenix Suns News – where I am a regular contributor.
