Professional Experience

For 15 years I've been writing about travel, food and wine for national publications, but I've also covered everything from murder trials to writers, architects and artists. Much as I love travel, I also enjoy writing profiles and am a true research hound. I'm comfortable writing for both print and internet. Because I grew up a government brat living in the Middle East and Southeast Asia, I have an overview not only of these regions but of the history of U.S. relations with them. I have worked as both a full-time and freelance editor.
