I'm a freelance writer with an athletic background, experience with photography and illustration, and a strong foundation in social media marketing. You can read my work on AFAR.com, Edutopia, Medium, RowingRelated, and in ROWING Magazine. In 2010, I started RowingRelated with the goal of delivering thought-provoking content to the rowing community, and have served as a correspondent and contributing writer for ROWING Magazine since 2011.

I began rowing as a freshman at UCLA, where I served as varsity captain for two years, and was named to the Pac-10 All Conference Rowing Team in 2003. In 2005, I placed fifth in the collegiate lightweight division at Crash-Bs, and was later invited to US U23 Lightweight Selection Camp. Since then, I've competed for the NYAC, placing second in the men's lightweight eight at the Head Of The Charles, winning the championship eight at the Head of the Schuylkill and racing at Henley Royal Regatta. From 2007-2008, I raced for the London Rowing Club (UK) while earning an MA in Classical Art and Archaeology at King's College London, winning the Metropolitan Regatta, and medaling in international regattas in Spain and Belgium.
