DICK JORDAN is a freelance travel writer who publishes the online travel magazine Tales Told From The Road (www.talestoldfromtheroad.com). Since its inception it has been read by nearly 150,000 people in almost 200 countries. Tales Told From The Road covers a wide range of travel-related topics, including travel news, destinations, book and movie reviews where place is a character, essays and memoirs, photography and videography tips, travel technology and smartphone app reviews. His freelance travel stories and photographs have appeared in the Contra Costa Times, Dallas Morning News, Los Angeles Times, Marin I-J, Oakland Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, and San Jose Mercury News. He has been a guest on the Azumano Travel Show broadcast by Portland, Oregon radio station KPAM, and on the Amateur Traveler and This Week in Travel podcasts. He is a TV producer for the Community Media Center of Marin (CMCM.tv) that operates MarinTV, a public access television station in Marin County, California, just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. His "Travel With A Sense of Place" shows aired on sixteen public access television stations from California to Maine during 2014. His five-part series of "One Minute-Plus Journeys" travel "shorts" will be seen on MarinTV during December of 2014 and January of 2015, and then be offered to other public access stations across the U.S. He has begun work on a series of half-hour travel shows that he hopes will run on public access television stations later in 2015.
