An award-winning independent writer, editor, author and photographer, I am a seasoned storyteller, a sculptor of words that reach out through the page to elicit an emotion or impel a reader to action.
Among my editorial clients are print publications with circulations ranging from 1 to 3 million per issue. My regular clients include:
- Inflight Magazines Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air edition
- AAA Publications Journey, Home & Away and Via magazines
- Tourism Publications Coho and Clipper Vacations magazines, plus the Washington State, Bellevue and Tacoma visitors guides.
In addition, I write for a broad range of other magazines on an occasional basis, from some of the largest AAA publications across the nation to Seattle Bride to Sunset Magazine.

Travel, natural foods, the environment and soft adventure are the topics that excite me, and I'm passionate about going beyond the surface to understand the history, culture and local customs that form a sense of place unlike any other.
From a pioneer family that settled in the region before Washington State was formed, my roots are firmly set in the soil of the Pacific Northwest, and I devote much of my time and attention to exploring my homeland.
Of Swedish descent, I'm enthralled with the sparkling cities and bucolic landscapes of the Nordic countries, and visit and write about Scandinavia often. I also visit and write frequently about Europe, Hawaii and Mexico.
