I was recently honored to be named the 2015 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalist of the Year, honorable mention. The Lowell Thomas awards are considered the most prestigious awards given for travel journalism in North America.
I'm a freelance writer and editor specializing in travel and fitness, although I cover many other subjects, too. I began my career writing for national consumer magazines and major newspapers, added in corporations and websites, seeded a wiki on marathoning and published two travel apps (on Wisconsin Dells and Spain's Via de la Plata pilgrimage trail). I'm a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) and the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), and in my spare time I love to travel and compete in any type of running event or adventure race. (And sometimes both.) Please explore the rest of my website to find out more about me and my work.
