Searching to the ends of the earth for the next compelling story, my life has been consumed by travel. While researching and writing articles for some of the world’s largest publications, I’ve visited 145 countries on all seven continents, plus all 50 U.S. states, all ten provinces and three territories in Canada, and all of the states in Australia.
Globetrotting for a living has provided some amazing adventures. I’ve enjoyed literally dozens of safari trips in Africa and India. I’ve taken 35 cruises, from small wooden-ship voyages in the Aegean and private-yacht trips in the waters of Southeast Asia, to trans-oceanic crossings, across the Pacific, Atlantic, and beyond. I have explored the polar regions, three times to Antarctica, many trips to the High Arctic. And much more, amidst a schedule of hundreds of days of travel every year. All the while writing for CNN Travel, the Globe and Mail, Bloomberg Pursuits, The New Yorker, AFAR, and many others.
