Our roadschool and education adventures are captured on my FamilyVagabonding blog.
My feature stories and profile pieces have appeared in in-house hospitality magazines for hotels and resorts around Hawaii.
My work has also appeared in brilliant but unfortunately now defunct outlets like The Traveler’s Library, Travelati, and a host of newsletters and web sites. (I stand firm that the quality of my work and their now defunct status are in no way related.)
Want more info? I look forward to hearing from you.
