I specialize in essays, adventure, luxury travel, lifestyle, and profiles. My stories have taken me to 120 countries on seven continents, where I have done marathons and triathlons, climbed, biked, hiked, paddled, luxuriated, and written about it all. I also love to write about my home, New York City.
My photos have appeared in Elite Traveler, National Geographic Traveler, Art & Antiques, the Christian Science Monitor, and Wine Enthusiast, among others. My photo of Sir Richard Branson is on the inside cover the Virgin Atlantic Airways brochure.
I write mainly for national magazines, newspapers, and blog travel for www.huffingtonpost.com. I am a contributing writer for Elite Traveler, Visa Black Card Mag, and many other publications (see full bio here). I am a published novelist and my stories appear in Travelerís Tales, A Wild Adventure Anthology, National Geographicís Spiritual Journey, and GoNomadís London Essays. I have won 21 major writing awards for my essays in the last three years including the most coveted award in travel writing, The Lowell Thomas SATW (Society of American Travel Writers) Gold Award.
When Iím not writing, traveling, or exploring Central Park, I run, bike, hike, do Mixed Martial Arts, practice my French, my bad Spanish, and play blues harmonica.
