Welcome!

I’m glad you decided to visit my web site. Here you can view a wide range of my writing samples. I’m a Colorado-based freelance writer specializing in travel, health, food and consumer issues, as well as the juvenile market. In fact there are few topics I won’t tackle.

I am always on the lookout for new outlets and know you will find me to be reliable, accurate and deadline conscious. Plus editors soon discover that I’m the person to call when they are in a bind.

My latest venture is Living On The Cheap, a national website filled with practical consumer-related advice and savings. I also own and operate Mile High On The Cheap, a successful metro Denver website devoted to deals, bargains and freebies and co-author the weekly column “Cheap Checklist” for the Denver Post.

You’ll find my stories in Global Traveler (Perfect Union, January 2017), Westways (Foreign Exchange, November 2016), Global Traveler (Empowered to Please, October 2016), Currents (Advance Work, October 2016), Westways (Visas 101, September 2016), Boys’ Life (Olympic Moments, August 2016), Currents (Advance Work, July 2016), Global Traveler (Rules of Engagement, September 2016; The Great Escape, Leisure issue 2016; The Big Splurge, July 2016; Trusted Travelers, May 2016), AAA Traveler Worldwise (Fly Through Airport Security, Winter 2016), AAA World (Luggage That Suits, January/February 2016), Global Traveler (A Breed Apart, Hotel Update: Carlson Rezidor, January 2016).

You can listen to my reporting for On Travel Radio from the Travel Goods Association 2012 Travel Goods Showcase. My article Decoding The Alphabet Soup published in the Dallas Morning News won a Gold Award in the 2010 SATW Foundation Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition.

While I hope you will peruse my writing samples section, you are also welcome to read some of my work posted online (either online versions of print stories or online-only articles). These include Value Added, Global Traveler, May 2015), Broke & Broken (USAA.com), Business Travel Meets Romance, Global Traveler, February 2015) and One Way or Another, (Global Traveler, January 2015).

As a professional, full-time journalist I hold membership in the American Society of Journalists and Authors and Society of American Travel Writers.
