I'm a writer and journalist with a dirty secret – a tendency to drift towards the dark side of communications. Adopting my after-dark persona of hype-mistress, I've developed communications strategies, copy, and campaigns for a range of clients in the outdoors, action sports, events, resort and travel world. (Scoop 'em up under the unifying tag: "Mountain Culture".) But at heart, I'm married to story. I write stories about mountain life. And people. In this small way, I'm doing my best to stop time. Or at least, slow it down, just a little.
