About me

Award-winning TV host and syndicated Travel Writer who, as a professional chef, loves telling the stories of communities through their history, culture, and food. I have penned multiple travel books, have more than one travel website, and also speak occasionally at different travel conferences. I have been known to freelance and even write for CVB/DMOs. My latest is Travel Wisconsin - my state tourism board.

What is your favorite travel destination?

Where do you dream of traveling to?

What was your first travel job?
