Home: About Me



I'm Hannah—a freelance journalist, content writer, and editor. You can see my work in The New York Times, GQ, National Geographic, Wired, Travel and Leisure, Forbes, CN Traveler, Outside, Well + Good, High Country News, SELF, and other publications. If you need help with reported features and essays regarding outdoor sports, public lands, or the environment, I'm your gal. 


Before diving into a writing career, I spent years in the outdoor industry bouncing around the West as a backpacking guide and educator. I also obtained a Master of Science in Environmental Studies through Prescott College. I'm originally from Baltimore, MD but now live in Salt Lake City, UT.


(I also design knitting patterns!)
