About Me

I am an author, freelance travel journalist and photographer. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and nature and includes them often in my writing and photography. History is another passion – every place has a story to tell if only you find it. Exploring different areas can uncover a myriad of information to share with the world.

I enjoy writing about my local area and places I travel to, sharing what I know and have experienced so other people can appreciate it as well. There are many places to seek out and discover. One ongoing project I am working on is delving into some music history and areas along the Mississippi Blues Trail. I am continually working on projects which offer an in-depth look at my local Coastal Mississippi area. I will explore a bit of New Brunswick, Canada later this summer as well as soak up some history in St. Augustine.

I love exploring the beautiful outdoors. The stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest will be upcoming, as well as areas along the Eastern seaboard. Venturing into England-Ireland-Scotland and Wales as well as Italy and other destinations outside the US is also on the future “to-do” list.

I am currently a member of TravMedia, SATW, IFWTWA, NATJA, and the Travel Writer’s University. My most recent adventure is becoming a Travel Consultant with GoSmart Travel – a move that will definitely complement my writing.
