Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I am an award-winning journalist and photographer. I've set foot on six continents, thirty states, and forty-seven countries.
I've written for Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, The San Francisco Chronicle, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, Real Simple Magazine, OZY, The Toronto Star, SKI Magazine and more. My on-camera reporting stories have appeared on Yahoo News, Reuters, ITN, and AOL news.
In addition to travel, I covered politics- that was quite an adventure too! I covered three National Conventions for CNN, traveled in a Vice Presidential Motorcade, and stayed up all night with election night coverage. I've also covered technology, terrorism, and general news for CNN, Fox News Channel, and CBS News in New York City.
I loved attending Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs where I received a Master degree in International Media and Communications. I also attended the University of Southern California for my undergraduate education and received degrees in both International Relations and Communications. (Fight On Trojans!)
In 2014 I won a Lowell Thomas Award for a personal comment story, and in 2016 I won a Rockower Award for Excellence in Personal Essay.
Travel and adventure has been a part of my life since I was a kid- lets keep on exploring- and learning every day- it is the best! Enjoy and be in touch!
