Go wherever it takes, but always come back with a good story.

Over the past few years I've visited cities, villages, statues, mountains, rivers, vineyards, castles and cathedrals all around the world. I am a firm believer in getting to know the culture & the people rather than just getting caught in the tourist traps. There is a good story in every trip, if you let the organic moments happen.

I write freelance articles and have been published in major international, national and regional publications. I also write a monthly travel column for a group of local Massachusetts newspapers.

I am available for freelance opportunities.
