Tim Wenger’s roots are in Colorado but much of his time is spent exploring farther reaches of the world, typically looking for fresh powder to track or local food and drink options to indulge in. He took a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in snowboarding from Fort Lewis College in 2007.
Tim stepped into the editorial marketplace in 2010 as a columnist with an entertainment website. In 2011 he chased down a magazine publisher to an underground bar in the suburbs of Denver, bought him a drink, and used the following fifteen minutes to talk his way into an Associate Editor role. He’s since written for publications across the entertainment, travel, and sports spectrums and contracted with local and international PR firms and media companies.
I’m certainly no do-it-all handyman. I’m decent at a few things and terrible at almost everything else. But the one thing I’m most proud of (other than marrying my wife) is that I’ve spent my life pursuing my passions of writing, music, and getting into the outdoors, preferably on a snowboard.
Making a living as a writer is a tough thing to do. I honestly feel that I’ve been able to progress because I’ve never done anything other than chase passions. Maybe that’s just fancy talk for my complete lack of a backup plan. Either way, it forces one to dive head-first into the fray and learn everything from business practices to sales to team management, all in order to pay the bills with words.
I’m still not sure what to tell people when they ask what I do. I’ll probably never have a good answer to that question. But that’s OK – it’s more exciting this way.
I started a self-produced ‘sports magazine’ at the age of 10, sold subscriptions to neighbors and relatives, and kept them informed primarily about the happenings of my Little League baseball team.
