About myself:

I've been working in media for 14 years. As the Executive Editor of New Mexico Magazine, the original state publication since 1923, I provide leadership, organization, and a vision for the editorial team and the various channels through which we publish premium content. I am also a Senior Correspondent at Powder Magazine. Previously I was the Editor at Powder, where I helped develop a multimedia feature series, Powder Productions, Powder Radio, and a travel website for skiers called Latitudes. We also published two books. In that time, the title won eight regional magazine awards while the American Society of Magazine Editors nominated Powder for three National Magazine Awards, including General Excellence, Special Interest. As a writer I have published more than a dozen feature stories in Powder, including a story that won Spain's Pica d'Estats award for international travel writing. My assignments have taken me across Russia, Israel, Spain, Norway, Italy, and throughout North America. I have also published work in Outside, ESPN, Coast Mountain Culture, and other media outlets. I can be reached at johnclarydavies@gmail.com.
