I divide my time between writing about travel, running a kayak business and trying to wring awe-inspiring adventure out of every day. Then I throw in surfing, yoga, mountain biking and trail running. I like having a lot to do.

I’ve also been a travel expert and contributor for Jetsetter and Fortnighter.
I’m a resident of the Writers’ Grotto, and a member of the Society of American Travel Writers, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and The Authors Guild.
My favorite trips include my Cuban honeymoon, tequila tasting in Mexico, hiking Peru’s Amazon jungle, finding my way in Namibia, kayaking in New Zealand’s Fiordland and absolutely everything in New Orleans. That said—I’ve never taken a trip I didn’t like, and I hit the road as much as possible.
