I write. I rant. I research and profile. I investigate. And I write essays.

Our roadschool aFVBnd 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.
