New & Noteworthy

Projects update: (January, 2018) First things first… Happy New Year!! It might sound a little odd to be taking a sabbatical from travel writing (I’ve been told it’s a dream job), but after two decades of non-stop international flights, unplanned layovers, jet lag and yes, some truly incredible experiences, I decided to fly below the radar in 2017. By cooling my jets and only using my passport twice in a whole year, I allowed myself the opportunity to spend more time with friends and family, take on a few sorely needed home improvement projects and pursue other aspects of my writing life. It really was a great refresh to get perspective on what’s next. First up, I will be wheels down in Chile’s double gorgeous Patagonia next month to research a story I’ve been wanting to write for three  years. Can’t tell you what it is yet, but be assured, it’s bien sabroso!

I’m also busy shopping  my spirits-meets-travel show that continues to bounce around to different producers, but as long as they want to take a meeting and buy me lunch, I’m good. Here’s the sizzle reel [link]. There’s also a couple of other travel and non-travel related projects that are in the development stage, so no need to get into that yet, details coming. I also want to take a second to look in the rear view mirror and share my favorite piece that I wrote in 2017 (technically it ran in late 2016, but I didn’t even see it till early 2017 and my editor said it got the most views then anyway. Sounds fair, right?). It’s been a dream since I was a kid to get to Rapa Nui (Easter Island) and I wrote this article for the New York Times to share a sense of true adventure, hopefully you feel the same way.

Once again, I want to wish you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year, filled with adventure, whatever that looks like for you!
