Let’s work together…
Over the past three decades, I’ve worked with more than 20 different DMOs and travel companies (including Travel Oregon, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Visit Seattle, Travel Portland, Orbitz, Visit St. Petersburg Clearwater, Visit Guam, the U.S. Cultural & Heritage Tourism Marketing Council,Visit Albuquerque, the Washington Wine Commission, Visit Denver, the Oregon Wine Board, Visit Indianapolis, and Visit Kansas City), providing engaging and credible content on a range of topics—from outdoor recreation to wine-touring to LGBTQ travel. I’ve also consulted with many of these same organizations to help them optimize their LGBTQ marketing efforts. Having launched several magazines, written and edited dozens of guidebooks for Fodor’s, and copy edited New Mexico Magazine, I know how to develop compelling content, produce clean and relevant copy, work closely with art directors and production editors, manage editorial budgets, edit in InDesign, and promote stories through social media.
As the creator of the first LGBTQ guidebook by a mainstream publisher, the award-winning Fodor’s Gay Guide to the USA, I’m also one of the world’s foremost experts on writing about and for this vital community. Whether you need an article that pairs great hikes with rewarding dining experiences, a roundup on what to see and do in Fort Worth during Pride Week, or a guide to the wine scene in Washington’s Woodinville Wine Country, I’d love to collaborate with you. I can create lively first-person narratives (with photography) or targeted content written in a voice that reflects your brand’s vibe and values. And I’m open to projects of all sizes, from 200 to 20,000 words—I’ve even written an entire visitor guide for Visit Seaside Oregon, and I’ve consulted on and produced two different LGBTQ travel brochures for the Guam Visitors Bureau.
Drop me a line, and let me know how we can work together!
