Kelly Hodgkins

Freelance outdoors and technology journalist


Greetings and welcome to my home on the internet! Let me take a few minutes to introduce myself in case you don’t know me! I’ve been writing online for more than a decade, working at sites like Gizmodo, TUAW, BGR, Digital Trends, and Greenbelly. Tired of the grind, I took a break from writing professionally in 2023. I am currently producing content on my own — writing, reviewing gear and exploring a new-found interest in photography.

Living near the White Mountains of NH and the Mahoosuc Mountains of Maine, I am backpacking, hiking and trail running any chance I can get. And with a background in science and technology, I bring a digital know-how to my backcountry adventures. Recently I backpacked the John Muir Trail in California, ran a 100K in a 24-hour trail race, and completed the NYC Marathon. This year I plan to tackle my first 100-mile race and will travel to Colorado to hike the western portion of the Collegiate loop.
