Professional Travel and Tourism Writer with 10+ Years of Publishing Experience
I’m an experienced writer and editor who has what it takes to bring life to your content – creativity, curiosity, a love for language, and tons of personal experience as a traveler. Count on me for engaging, informative blog articles, news pieces, travel guides, web copy, newsletter copy, SEO content, social media, press releases, and more.
Aside from writing and editing, travel is my biggest passion. It’s true that everyone loves a vacation, but not everyone packs up and travels nonstop for five years! From 2014 to 2019, that’s exactly what I did. I spent time in Europe, the Caribbean, and in many cities in the United States as a digital nomad, writing as I traveled.
Here are a few things that set me apart as a writer:
• More than 12 years of professional writing and editing experience • B.A. in Linguistics from University of Michigan (go Blue!) and an M.A. in English from Northeastern Illinois University • Editing positions for both print magazines and digital publications • On-the-job experience in journalism • SEO writing and keyword research experience • Passion for correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation • Ability to adjust to various writing styles and tones • Proficiency in AP style • Experience with content management systems, including WordPress
Topics I’ve covered include:
• Luxury accommodations • Budget hotels • Sustainable travel • Arts and culture events • Travel tips • Travel-related news • Activities and things to do • Food • Travel niches like LGBT travel, beach vacations, and vegan destinations
American cities I’ve traveled to include: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Boston, Milwaukee, St. Louis, New Orleans, Denver, San Diego, Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Nashville, Indianapolis, Charleston, Columbus, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Anchorage, and Honolulu
