For more than two decades I have been lucky to be paid to write about offbeat people, places, and things. I’ve explored country music hot spots and the market for Frank Lloyd Wright ephemera. A prolific freelance editor and writer, I have covered personal finance, startup businesses, women’s health, pet-friendly travel, gardening, standup paddling, and everything in between for publications ranging from Condé Nast Traveler to Fortune to Crain’s Chicago Business to Nashville Lifestyles to Rolling Stone Country. I author guidebooks under the Moon imprint.
A native of Boise, Idaho, I now live in Nashville, Tennessee, where I write about what makes Music City special. Also, I spend time in Chicago, Memphis, Chattanooga, The Mississippi Delta, Little Rock, and wherever else my assignments take me. Favorite domestic travel destinations include Detroit, Palm Springs, Calif., and the 444-mile Natchez Trace Parkway. I’ll never pass up a chance to go to Buenos Aires, Cape Town, or Copenhagen (well, except during a pandemic).
