“Over the past two years, Sam has been intimately involved as our editorial liaison with the marketing and sales department and has played a major role in many of our integrated platform successes,” noted OUTSIDE Publisher Scott Parmelee. “As content integration continues to play a critical role in the business success of the OUTSIDE brand, Moulton is the natural choice for the job bringing a unique skill set and vast knowledge of OUTSIDE’s brand and content.”

Moulton’s first experience with OUTSIDE was in 1999 when he interned for the magazine. Seven years later he returned as Editor of the magazine’s Buyer’s Guide and has held the position of Executive Editor since 2010. Moulton helped to oversee the redesign and relaunch of the website in 2011 and during his tenure OUTSIDE was awarded a National Magazine Award for General Excellence in 2013. Previous to his editorial experience at OUTSIDE, Moulton was the Editor-at-Large for Canoe and Kayak Magazine and Senior Editor at Skiing Magazine.

Known for decades of expert adventure storytelling such as Perfect Storm and Into the Wild, OUTSIDE has garnered ASME nods for General Excellence Magazine, General Excellence Website, and Reporting for the Yarnell Hill fire story “Nineteen.” The magazine is also nominated for two Society of Publication (SPD) design awards and a number of design merits as well as a James Beard journalism award for Elizabeth Gilbert's Roam travel essay on Luang Prabang in Laos.
