Tester at Large

As a freelance writer, I have contributed to The Chicago Tribune, Outside, Islands, Wild Earth, High Country News, Alternative Medicine, The Big Sky Journal, The Denver Post, Powder, and Skiing. My writing has been noted in Best American Essays 2005 and I won a fellowship in non-fiction literature from the Colorado Council on the Arts in 2003.

I have also put my writing and editing skills to use in a wide array of professional and industry projects. I am currently project editor for the Outdoor Retailer Show Dailies. In 2006, I edited the Outdoor Industry Association’s Active Outdoor Recreation Report, a publication meant to educate politicians and policy makers on the $730-billlion economic impact of healthy outdoor recreation.
