About Me:
With 15 years in the trenches and 60 journalism awards from international, national, and regional publishing associations, I think I can safely say that I excel at the art of telling a story. My experience has been honed by positions as a newspaper editor, full-time magazine staff writer, and freelance journalist, giving me a well-rounded arsenal of styles and a healthy appreciation for deadlines.

I am also a professional photographer with a portfolio that includes magazine, newspaper, marketing agency, art, and personality work, and in the travel photography world, I am an Instagram influencer. My following is 12,500 people strong, and my engagement rate is a beastly 14 percent, which gives me a powerful voice in the industry.

My writing and photography has appeared in a wide variety of media including USA Today, Huffington Post, Midwest Living Magazine, Minnesota Monthly, Houghton Mifflin Publishing, Flat Iron Press, AAA Living, Lavender Magazine, Exhibitor Magazine, Milwaukee Sentinel Journal, Minneapolis Star Tribune, and more.

My travels have taken me around the world, and this year alone I have explored Costa Rica, Cuba, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, and Mexico. Coming up this year are trips to Portugal, Spain, Cuba, and Italy.

Whether a first-person journey or an angled piece about cultures, individuals, or itineraries, I am always poised to write from a variety of voices because I cultivate relationships and sources during my travels. All of my travel pitches include professional images.
