About me

I'm a professional writer, which enables me to work from anywhere. I'd traveled solo around much of the world for 3 years before I turned 30, and loved it but planned to not travel again until I had a "significant other" to share the adventures with. That never happened because I never met an American who liked to travel as I did and life with a 9-5 alarm clock person wasn't for me. In 2011 after many successful years tech & lifestyle writing (some travel writing) in LA, I gave up my home base & started traveling again.

Sometimes hostels. Sometimes sharing a hotel room with a fellow traveler. Sometimes house-sitting or sub-letting. Sometimes staying with people as I help them with computer stuff, web things, or writing. Other times visiting some of the great people I've become friends with around the world.

Why did you join the community?

I received an invitation and the name was intriguing. I'm not sure where or how I'd fit in. I actaully travel full time for months at a time and enjoy seeing and learning the places. Maybe I can meet people and maybe we can help eachother.

What is your favorite travel destination?

Favorite for what? Every place has something that's beautiful, interesting, tasty, friendly, or unique.

Where do you dream of traveling to?

I'm ready for islands surrounded by warm water where I can rent or borrow small boats or kayaks.

What was your first travel job?

Writing for The International Traveler or much later, for ValleyLife Magazine

Three words that describe why we should travel?
