So, you may be wondering: beyond being someone who loves to travel, who am I?
To start, I work in Training & Development for one of the world’s largest consumer products companies. I enjoy it, and it gives me a chance to travel. But more importantly, I’m someone who is constantly in search of new and unique experiences.
For many years I questioned this. Why couldn’t I just settle down? Be content? Like job security and knowing a ‘routine?’ I thought there must be something wrong with me. But I’ve finally come to realize that there’s nothing wrong with me at all. I’m a writer. And it’s because I’m a writer that I have an insatiable desire to explore and be inspired. I need variety and a change of scenery. I don’t think I could survive without it. Luckily, I don’t have to.
I’ve only been travel blogging for a short time, but I’ve been traveling and writing my whole life. I’ve freelanced for dozens of regional and national publications such as Highlights for Children, Child Magazine, Boys’ Life, Capper’s, Personal Journaling, Dog Fancy, Wee Parents, Daughters’ Newsletter, Hole, German Life, and others. In addition, I wrote weekly columns, book reviews, restaurant reviews, feature articles, and advertorials for the Cox Newspaper Group from 2005-2008.
I’ve always been a writer. I’ll always be a writer. If you want me to write about your venue, attraction, or area, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
