I'm a professional journalist with experience as a full-time staff member at three metropolitan newspapers including the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune, the Wisconsin State Journal and the Mlive Media Group where I was the shared bureau travel writer for a chain with 1 million Sunday readers. I've also worked as a magazine editor, college journalism instructor and blogger.

My current passion is travel and telling those travel tales through a variety of mediums including an occasional NPR travel podcast (Journeys of Discovery), blogs, long-form magazine pieces and shorter newspaper stories.

You'll find my work in outlets including the Mlive Media group's chain of eight Michigan newspapers, AAA Living, Indianapolis Monthly, Lakeland Boating, Traverse Magazine, Michigan Blue, 25A (luxury travel magazine), Parade, Midwest Living and more, including GoNomad.com and Jetsetter.com.
