  •  Over 25 years’ experience working with public relations firms, tourist bureaus, resort and hotel owners/managements

I travel from historic cities to ancient shipwrecks to get the stories and tailor them to a publication’s specific readership. My art and theatre background gives me a perspective unique to travel correspondents. An avid food and wine enthusiast, I continue to expand my palate with each adventure, writing and reviewing restaurants at home and abroad.

Whether you need profiles on personalities, editorials about that special budget place or luxury travel, postcards from everyday life or life beneath the sea, I can give you clear, accurate, in-depth coverage accompanied by dynamic photographs. I never miss a deadline.
