New & Noteworthy

Projects update: (May 5, 2014) Outside magazine has always been a favorite of mine. Their combination of adrenalin-fueled adventure, far-flung locales and great journalism have made me an avid reader for years. So it’s especially gratifying to add “Outside contributor” to my list of accomplishments with the recent posting of a feature article I wrote highlighting the return of the sailing canoe to French Polynesia. The piece showcases a new format Outside has introduced that combines a multi-image photo gallery with in-depth captions to create a great platform for visual storytelling. My piece¬† includes images shot by me and veteran adventure travel photographer John Canning and chronicles our exploration of several exotic islands experiencing this renaissance of Polynesian culture while journeying to a watersports festival in Bora Bora.

I’m also busy writing launch web content for some new Kimpton hotels and writing branded content for the Visit California online press room developing story starters and other editorial materials covering topics ranging from wine & spirits to only-in-California stays. And I recently wrote my first iPad app! It’s a city guide to Los Angeles co-published by Expedia UK and Metro UK. Hopefully a lot of Brits (and anyone else for that matter) will find it really useful for exploring the lesser-known, loved-by-locals elements of my hometown.
