My passion is connecting people to places both physically, as a nature connection guide, and emotionally, through speaking, writing and marketing. I've worked in the tourism and travel industry for 20+ years as an integrated marketing communications professional, gaining extensive experience in copywriting, marketing and public relations. I specialize in written content for the tourism and outdoor industries and I also provide consulting services to tourism partners. If you want to connect to sell me something, please don’t bother.
