I'm a full-time writer, editor, and sometimes-photographer with a focus on travel, the outdoors, and adventure (and no, that doesn't have to mean staying in tents!)

I've written for California Wedding Day, TheKnot, Real Weddings California, Style Mag, Matador, Culture Trip, the SF Chron, SkyLife Magazine, Canadian Traveller Magazine, Outside Magazine, Lonely Planet, Citizen Femme, The Spruce, Insider, Forbes, Mental Floss, Fodors, Frommers, Playboy, The Discoverer, Tech Radar, How Stuff Works, and more.
