A freelancer with the ability and interest to write about everything from a school for butlers in London to an engineering analysis of a dam collapse. My primary interest in travel and lifestyle, but I love writing for the trades because there is so much neat 'stuff' out there. I am fascinated by the unending variety of wisdom and wonders of the world. My business card reads "Eclectic Adventures & Traveler's Tales." That sums it up.
