I'm a freelance writer of ebooks and blog articles dealing with travel, history, healthy living and art. While my travel writing certainly contains practical information to help people orient themselves to different places, I tend to go a little deeper into the historical context than the average guide book. My theory is the more you know about a place besides its location, the more you see.
This is the same philosophy I bring to all the subjects I write about. My goal is to give readers a unique twist on each topic I address in hopes of offering a new way of looking at things that both challenges, and expands the perspective you arrived with.
My professional background is in education as a teacher in everything from public schools to adult education, and even a stint in corporate training. When I'm not writing I enjoy spending time reading, hiking, and traveling.
I call Marin county in the San Francisco Bay Area home, but I also spend a lot of time in Montreal, Québec.
