Summer Writing Webinar Series

This spring I taught several one-night adventure/travel writing workshops in Seattle, Lake Tahoe, San Diego, Los Angeles and Bend. After the workshops, I received dozens of emails from students, all asking the same question: What’s next?

Kilimanjaro Slideshows

In the summer of 2016, International Mountain Guides sent me to Tanzania to lead three expeditions to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. This November, I’ve been given the opportunity to share photos and stories from my six weeks in Africa at two slideshows. They’re both in the Pacific Northwest, and they’re both free. Join us!

Backcountry Brunch

In August 2016, I was invited to be part of the Stay Wild EXPO at the World Forestry Center in Portland, Oregon. They called the event “the world’s first adventure festival,” and I gave a backcountry cooking demonstration with Snow Peak. We made cobbler. And mimosas.

Chattermarks & The North Cascades Institute

This March, I was invited to speak to a group of graduate students who are studying at the North Cascades Institute (NCI) outside of Bellingham, Washington. After I left, one of the students wrote about the experience in Chattermarks, their community’s blog.

The Mineral School

There’s a new residency in town! The Mineral School invites writers to stay and work in a renovated school building in a tiny community nestled in the foothills of Mount Rainier. They also host a lecture series—and this July, I will be one of the guest lecturers.

Columbia River Slideshows

During the last week of October 2014, I had the incredible privilege of kayaking the Lower Columbia River Water Trail, a 146-mile stretch of river nestled between Washington and Oregon. Now that we’ve finished the voyage, we’re pleased to announce that we’ve booked several slideshows!
