I am a freelance travel writer and blogger with a yen for food and wine.
Family vacations as a child opened my eyes to the wonders of travel but my true travel addiction began in the Netherlands as an exchange student. Moving to Luzern, Switzerland a few years later, it flourished. Every spare moment was spent traveling.

My articles have appeared in a variety of print and online publications including: The Good Life France Magazine, MilesGeek, Short Weeks - Long Weekends, Epicurean Traveler and more.
I am a member of The International Travel Writers Alliance (ITWA), and TravMedia.
