A Florida-based independent journalist, freelancer, storyteller and adventurer with more than 20 years of editorial experience, I credit my love of travel and insatiable curiosity to being an Army brat — I was born on a military base in Belgium and have been on the go ever since.

Through my work I enjoy diving into topics, finding expert sources and sharing stories in interesting and engaging ways for publications like AARP, AFAR, Allrecipes, Condé Nast Traveler, Crain Currency, Forbes Vetted, Garden & Gun, Global Traveler, Go Escape, Marriott Bonvoy Traveler, Southern Living, Travel Curator and plenty more.
