A freelance professional, I deliver clean, colorful and well-researched copy on everything from landscape gardening, the environment and home design to Habitat home-building in the Mekong Delta. Along with Pat Terry photos, my travel, home and environmental articles have appeared in magazines, major newspapers and Internet media. On travel stories, I often team up with Cliff Terry, an award-winning feature writer who's also authored guidebooks to Chicago.
