As I child, I read and re-read my grandmother’s dog-eared collection of National Geographic Magazines, with the big, bold, beautiful photos. Gigantic maps stretched across the floor with the markings of lakes and mountains. Strange words identified the villages, towns, and cities of far-away lands. My grandmother, a retired teacher, asked questions after I finished reading each article and taught me to think about the impacts of geography on world cultures.

The time I spent with my grandmother certainly influenced my love for travel and my interest in seeing the places that I’ve read about.

Since 2012, I’ve been writing about my travels on my personal blogs, for online websites, and for print publications.


These published articles and photos may be available for your publication. I find that words and images go hand in hand for achieving a compelling story. Please enjoy your reading time by choosing your area of interest.
