I'm a freelance writer based in San Diego, California, who regularly contributes to JustLuxe, Luxury Lifestyle Magazine, and Locale Magazine. My work has also been featured in Yoga Journal, London's Evening Standard, and Virgin Australia Magazine.

Favorite adventures from the 40+ countries I have visited over the years include crossing the Salar de Uyuni from Bolivia into Chile in a Toyota Land Cruiser, learning to scuba dive in Dahab and a two-night felucca trip on The Nile in Egypt, trekking to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal, snowboarding in Hokkaido, Japan, and a two-month surf trip along Mexico's Pacific Coast.
