The bulk of my work is as a freelance travel writer and photographer. In this role I've written for numerous regional, national, and international outlets, including newspapers, magazines, and websites. I'm drawn to this type of work because I truly believe that travel broadens the mind, and can, over time, solve, soothe, or salve many of the world's ills.

It may sound sappy, but some of the most poignant lessons I've learned have been made clear and seen to be most relevant while I've been on the road. That's why I write about travel.

Copied below you'll find a few links to travel articles that I've written.
