About Me

In my former position as editor and PR manager of travel website, VirtualTourist.com (part of the TripAdvisor Media Group), I wrote regular, internationally syndicated columns for Reuters News Service, United Press International (UPI), and Tribune Media. My travel writing from these columns has appeared on CNN.com, LATimes.com, Forbes.com, BostonGlobe.com, MSNBC.com, ABCNews.com, more television news programs than I was able to keep track of, and even on the home page of Yahoo.com (an event that generated so much traffic it shut our site down for a while). Additionally, I was also writer and editor for the company’s guidebooks to Paris and Montreal and was responsible for securing Virtual Tourist’s regular appearances on and pre-producing the company’s travel information segments for the Today show. These days I work as an editor for travel website, Trippy.com, where I write the company's columns for Huffington Post and Yahoo! Travel. I have also written for Domino.com on my other passion, home design.
