Travel Articles

As a native Californian, I enjoy writing about my home state and sharing its bounty. But I also love traveling abroad and bringing those stories home to readers. Here are some of my travel articles that have been published.

Inspirato is a luxury lifestyle magazine for the sophisticated traveler. Read about the Riviera Maya and its otherworldly underground caverns in the 2016 Summer/Fall Issue.

Dreamscapes is Canada’s premier travel & lifestyle magazine. View my articles on West Hollywood (WeHo) and its dining scene in the 2015 Fall/Winter Issue (page 30) or on the website.

I’ve contributed articles from 2011-2016.
