Greetings – I’m an award-winning writer, a contributing editor for Virtuoso Life magazine, a sailor, an empty nester, a gardener, and a road-tripper. The SATW Foundation named me their Lowell Thomas Travel Journalist of the Year award in 2016. I’ve written about far-flung places for National Geographic Adventure, Travel & Leisure, Town & Country, Outside, Coastal Living, and Sunset.
Before moving to the Northwest I spent a decade as a senior editor at Travel & Leisure. I was one of the founding editors at Microsoft’s online adventure magazine, Mungo Park, as well as travel books editor at Amazon.
My new book, UNCHARTED, an adventure memoir about a voyage from one life chapter to another, being called both “a Wild for the empty-nest set” and “the Moby-Dick of empty nesting,” launches from Sasquatch/Penguin Random House September 17th.
