I’m an author, journalist, and film producer who covers conservation issues and Utah politics. I’m currently a staff reporter for The Salt Lake Tribune. My work has also appeared in Outside, Slate, Sierra, USA Today, National Geographic Traveler, High Country News, Four Corners Free Press, High Desert Journal, Canoe & Kayak, and HuffPost.
Confluence: Navigating the Personal & Political On Rivers of the New West, my first book, was published by Torrey House Press in October 2019. It was selected for Outside magazine’s 12 Favorite Earth Day Reads and the Pacific Standard‘s 25 Must-Read Books for the Fall of 2019.
My next book, which will cover Lake Powell’s decline and the rebirth of the Colorado River in Glen Canyon, is forthcoming from Torrey House Press with support from the The Ellen Meloy Fund for Desert Writers.
