ABOUT ME
Under the guise of reporting, I have found myself in some interesting places. For the sake of a story, I have fallen off a motorcycle (and  nearly ruined new Frye boots);  dabbled in taxidermy; trembled in a pitch black haunted prison at 2 a.m.; and toiled over a white-hot fire with a blacksmith as my muse.

Based in the District of Columbia but often pulled to the open road, I write about travel, adventure, dogs and innovation. I am a regular contributor to The Washington Post, National Parks, USA Today, Washingtonian and and contributing writer for the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation’s magazine, trajectory.

I am an avid swimmer and paddler, third-generation Washingtonian, aspiring ukelele player and a rare book merchant. My degrees come from Syracuse University and Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. My inspiration comes from my beagle.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/08/30/AR2005083001531.htmlhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/01/08/AR2008010803863.html?sub=ARhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/05/30/AR2006053001167.htmlhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/05/09/AR2006050901572.htmlhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/http://www.npca.org/news/magazine/http://www.usatoday.comhttp://www.washingtonian.com/index.htmlhttp://trajectorymagazine.comshapeimage_1_link_0shapeimage_1_link_1shapeimage_1_link_2shapeimage_1_link_3shapeimage_1_link_4shapeimage_1_link_5shapeimage_1_link_6shapeimage_1_link_7shapeimage_1_link_8
