Why wanderlust?

Why do I wanderlust? I’ve travelled to more than 25 countries, often independently, from Alaska to Zanzibar (okay, not yet, but it’s on my list!).

I’m a different kind of travel writer. Sure, I’m on social media, but working with me is about more than hashtags. You get much more than rushed, amateur online posts. I craft  cover-worthy feature-length travel articles with style and substance. I tell travellers not just what to do, but why.

I draw on my 15+ years as a veteran national award-winning journalist, and leverage training with Pultizer Prize-winning writers to showcase your stories, your properties, your people and natural wonders, your food and culture to delight and inspire travellers to pack their bags and hit the road.

I’m a reliable professional and I’ve worked successfully with both national and international tourism bureaus, including Tourism B.C. and the Riviera Nayarit Tourism Bureau,  as well as with multi-national global airlines, including Turkish Airlines, and with leading Canadian tourism companies such as G Adventures. I am an accredited member of the B.C. Association of Travel Writers and a published photographer with a warm, documentary style.

My travel tales and travel photography appear regularly in The Vancouver Sun and The Vancouver Province, and on their web sites and social media channels. My work is also regularly reprinted across the country via the Postmedia newspaper chain, with publications in the National Post, Edmonton Journal, Ottawa Citizen, Montreal Gazette, Regina Leader-Post, Victoria Times-Colonist, and others.

All of my articles are also shared on this web site and on my Why Wanderlust? social channels including Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Please contact me to discuss opportunities to collaborate.
