I ski, run, climb, bike, and travel. Sometimes with an Action Figure Mascot. These are my stories.

Helicopter Rescue: A Story of Survival
For the March/April edition of Mountaineer magazine, I was privileged to write about my friend Miles McDonough, a volunteer rescuer for both the Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team and Everett Mountain Rescue. Miles was already devoting his free time to rescue when he was in a catastrophic climbing accident. He battled a long road of recovery, and has made it his personal goal to find a sustainable source of funding so he can continue saving lives for decades to come.
I've said how lucky I feel that my job allows me to write for a living, but in this case I feel particularly fortunate to hopefully help a cause so critical to the outdoor community I love.
