For more than three 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 road trips, pet-friendly travel, personal finance, startup businesses, women’s health, gardening, standup paddling, and everything in between for publications ranging from Condé Nast Traveler to Fortune to Preservation to the Nashville Scene to Rolling Stone Country. I author guidebooks under the Moon imprint.
A native of Boise, Idaho, and a former long-time resident of Chicago, I now live in Nashville, Tennessee, where I write about what makes Music City special. I also spend time in Memphis, Chattanooga, The Mississippi Delta, The Great Smoky Mountains, Little Rock, and wherever else my assignments take me. Other favorite domestic travel destinations include Detroit, Palm Springs, Calif., and I’m an expert on all things about the 444-mile Natchez Trace Parkway. I’ll never pass up a chance to go to Buenos Aires, Cape Town, or Copenhagen.
