Eric Brown (@ericrennerbrown) is an online editorial intern at Outside. He's a senior at Northwestern University, where he studies magazine journalism and American history. Before coming to Santa Fe, Eric did time at Sierra magazine and the Santa Cruz Sentinel. He's always happy to hit the trails and jams a mean rendition of the Grateful Dead's "Deal" on guitar.
