Travel Writing

I haven’t been everywhere yet, but it is on my list. For as long as I’ve been in journalism, I’ve been creating travel content. I’ve earned datelines from Reykjavik, Edinburgh, St. Petersburg and beyond.

My travel articles have appeared in publications including Travel + LeisureYahoo TravelBusiness InsiderThe Wall Street Journal and the Chicago Tribune. From 2011 to 2013, I was Afar’s Chicago travel expert. I am five states and one continent away from my goal of visiting all 50 U.S. states and all seven continents.
