when not writing about exploration in space...
...I tell stories about adventures here on Earth, with articles appearing in The Huffington Post, Smithsonian Magazine, The Travel Channel, Travel + Leisure, blogs for The National Geographic Society, Thrillist, Red Bull, Lonely Planet, The Wall Street Journal, Business Insider, IBTimes, the Daily Meal, CityRoom, and many other publications.
I have hosted themed #chats on Twitter, hosted Instagram takeovers (Department of the Interior; Lonely Planet), and had several televised appearances as well as on-air radio and podcast segments (The TakeAway WNYC, NPR). Experiencial writing outlets have included Findery, RootsRated, JustLuxe, and other online networks that bridge the gap between social networking, travel writing, and reviews for travelers. I am in the top 1% of Trip Advisor reviewers and a member of the Travel Writers Network.
Every now and then I tackle side projects that include logo design, company branding, print design, article writing, website design and development, social media campaigns, photography projects, and other freelance assignments.
I am presently accepting freelance assignments related to travel and social media ... I think. Please contact me to inquire.
