Journalist, editor, copywriter, traveler, documentary maker, and seeker of delicious food

Nothing irks me more than the idea of a good story that goes untold. I suppose that's why I'm always behind a lens, writing down everything I see, and always hopping on the next plane to destinations unknown.

I'm a journalist, blogger, editor, and sometimes long-form writer who delivers a wide variety of content from a multimedia perspective.

I also write journalistic pieces for a variety of outlets, including through video and photography. Ultimately, my quest for a story that people can relate to has led me to explore such varied subjects such as hiking Corsica's majestic Monte Cinto, the harrowing conflict in Ukraine, or simply letting people know what's fun to do in New Orleans.

I have also helped deliver SEO optimized content for companies like Huawei and eBay Australia, while also helping a number of smaller businesses reach their marketing goals. I also consider myself pretty lucky to be able to do what I do.

I believe my background makes me suitable to tackle just about any journalistic or marketing challenge, and that's why I'm open to all possibilities going into the future.
