One of my first jobs was writing. I covered my high school sports for a tiny local newspaper. Now I write all sorts of things: blogs and facebook posts, scientific journal articles, books, and, like all writers, unpublished novels. I’ve held numerous editorships too. Without giving you the whole list, here’s what I’m working on now.
Adrenaline Junkies Bucket List: 100 Extreme Adventures Before You Die, a collection of thrilling snippets of adventure sports around the world, is due out in June 2013 by St. Martins Press.
Mountain Rescue Doctor: Wilderness Medicine in the Extremes of Nature, a memoir and collection of stories from a decade of mountain rescue, is available in paperback from St. Martins Press. It was a finalist for Oregon Book Awards and Banff Festival of Mountain Books.
Editor-in-Chief of NewsShare and Communications for International Society for Travel Medicine is a new appointment and I’m really excited to lend my skills to a great professional group.
Recently, I’ve had magazine and journal pieces in Portland Monthly, Eastern Oregon Visitors Association Guide, Backcountry, Wilderness and Environmental Medicine, and Columbia Gorge Magazine.
I frequently review medical and non-medical outdoor gear. Some writings have appeared in Great Gear for Work and Play, previously published in Wilderness Medicine, for which I served as editor-in-chief for ten years.
