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 Westways (Wacky Packing, March/April 2018), AAA Hawaii (Foreign Exchange, March/April 2018), Northern New England Journey (Visas 101, March/April 2018), Boys’ Life (Ready Set, Go!, February 2018), AAA World (Crazy Smart Things To Pack, January/February 2018), Currents (Advance Work, November 2017), Global Traveler (Step by Step: The New Marriott, May 2017), Living On The Cheap (7 money saving tips for buying, and not losing, new luggage, May 2017), Living On The Cheap (How to fly through airport security lines, May 2017), Global Traveler (Perfect Union, January 2017).

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.

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