I am a freelance writer based in North Lake Tahoe, one of America’s premier destinations. For the last 20 years, I have written a variety of content including: press releases, magazine/newspaper articles, blog posts, website pages, and books. (I had my first article published in Launch wakeboard magazine when I was 15 years old.) I am currently a regular contributor to Enjoy magazines, The Tahoe Weekly, the Sparks Tribune,  and Nevada Gram. My latest published articles are found below, or feel free to access the digital versions of my 2019 articles, 2018 articles2017 articles, and 2016 articles.


Need help with content or interested in learning more about my writing services? Email me and let’s talk. 


I'm also excited to announce that I recently co-authored a book with Stuart Thornton titled Northern California Road Trips out in stores now! It is the perfect companion for a trip around Northern California, spelling out where to go, what to see, and what to do in the state's coastal and inland regions. This comprehensive guide also includes a variety of maps, images,  and information about national parks such as Lassen, Crater Lake, Yosemite, and more. I hope you enjoy reading Northern California Road Trips as much as I enjoyed writing it and that you find a place (or a few) that you connect with and will want to come back to :)
