You know that feeling when you're striking out for a new destination – that sense of wonder and discovery and adventure that quivers right beneath your skin? I try to do that every time I leave my house. Every day a new horizon awaits, you just have to open your eyes!
I'm an award-winning writer, photographer and Morocco expert. I am the author and principal photographer of the Moon Travel Guides: Morocco as well as hundreds of other articles, photos and videos for magazines and websites around the world. I curate and edit the Journey Beyond Travel blog and sometimes keep a daddy blog, Papa Parisian, which I try (and often fail) to update as much as possible with helpful info and funny, sometimes heartwarming stories about navigating The City of Light with my toddling son.
I grew up in Seattle and have lived in different parts of the US, from San Francisco to Key West. Since 2009 I have been living overseas — first in Morocco where I spent six years in a village on a mountain – and now Paris, where I am currently based, living with my talented, patient, superhero wife and our two year-old, dinosaur-loving, fromage-stuffing, class-clowning, über-precocious Batman-in-training.
These days, I spend about half of the year in Paris, a few months in Morocco, and then another month or so traveling the world. You can listen in to my story of how I got here with Zero to Travel on their podcast or read the interview with my old alma mater, the University of Washington.
