About

I have written four books and co-authored two others, and was named a National Magazine Award finalist twice. I was a Yaddo Fellow in 2019. My stories, which have been published and/or cited as “notable” in The Best American Series (Sports, Essays and Travel) 29 times, have appeared in The New York Times, the Washington Post, Esquire, GQ, Outside, New York magazine, Runner’s World and many other publications.  I grew up in St. Louis, graduated from Stanford University and I live in Manhattan.
