Who I Am

Freedom Loving Creative

A former math teacher and self-proclaimed homebody, I’m an unlikely wanderer. A Fulbright teaching exchange to Scotland in the early nineties and, later, a 13-month travel sabbatical, however, introduced me to the kind of freedom that was lacking in my life and a life-altering urge to explore. 

What I Do

Custom Words & Visuals

Pursuing passion and purpose, I take great joy in putting words and pictures to the stories of real people inspired by real experiences. Maybe that's the reason I love projects that allow me to settle in, dig beneath the surface and understand what makes communities, companies and countries tick. 

 

Who I Work With

Client Recommendations

One of the gifts of my work is that I get to work with inspiring and fascinating people I can collaborate with and learn from. Whether it's intrepid entrepreneurs and life-changing adventurers or small businesses and big brands, the common denominator is a passion for exploration and effecting change along the way.

I Could Live Here


Do you fall in love with the places you visit? Do you imagine yourself settling down and living like a local? I do. I found myself thinking "I Could Live Here" so often it inspired a life-changing adventure and the story behind my first book.

I Could Live Here


Do you fall in love with the places you visit? Do you imagine yourself settling down and living like a local? I do. I found myself thinking "I Could Live Here" so often it inspired a life-changing adventure and the story behind my first book. 

Why just live in one place when you could temporarily inhabit the world? In my first book, I COULD LIVE HERE, I explore how modern day nomads, like me and my husband, are redefining what home means and how to feel rooted, deeply and firmly, no matter where you live.  Click here to learn more.

Discover the #1 Website for Experiential Storytelling


Sometimes it's crazy, astounding, amazing, funny, frustrating, and exasperating, but no matter what happens....life is always a trip. 

In 2009, I launched the group travel blog YourLifeIsATrip.com with travel journalist Judith Fein on the belief that other travelers shared our desire to read about real people writing about real life. No top ten lists. No advertiser-driven content. Just authentic experiences. Today, we're the #1 website for experiential storytelling and narrative travel writing with hundreds of writers world wide and each story as unique and original as the people behind them.
