About me

Industry Consulting
Occupation adventure junkie, writer/editor/publisher, entrepreneur, consultant, tutu
Location Ashland, Oregon, United States
Introduction Friends think I'm the travel guru. I think of myself as an adventure junkie. Whatever...I love being on the road, tasting new cultures, new experiences, art, food. As a passionate entrepreneur, I created several businesses on the US mainland, in Hawaii and the South Pacific, for many years brokering private islands and boutique resorts. Today I write...and photograph. I write content for businesses - blogs, articles, brochures, annual reports, press releases, etc. I write a regular human interest column, freelance for many publications, and publish photography books, cookbooks, and novels. Traveling to over 90 islands and 60 countries, I have tales to tell. Stories from magical places – Bora Bora, Aituatki, Rarotonga, Fiji, Koh Phangan, St. Honorat, Maui...and more – pepper my writings, which are autobiographically inspired and informed. Visit One Foot Island and Saturday markets; watch quick-hipped dancers, hear tribal drums, feast on coconut cuisine and taste the essence of island places, island lives. My life is my art (and being on the road, I get to live in color). Life's a trip...so get out there and enjoy this bright, beautiful planet!
Interests friends, family, film, surfing, cooking, writing/editing, astronomy, books (paper and digital), politics, dharma, travel, photography, islands... "Life is so hard. How can we be anything but kind?"
