I'm getting paid to do the thing I've loved with a fierce passion since kindergarten in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I travel up and down the Caribbean island chain from my home base in the U.S. Virgin Islands, absorbing as much of the food, culture, and natural beauty as possible from each of these unique islands. I turn my experiences into enticing travel articles for hotel booking websites and official tourism publications, and captivating in-depth features on Caribbean architecture. I keep one foot in the newsroom, where I got my start more than a decade ago, by contributing to various local and international news outlets. I write about more than just the Caribbean, and I work as senior editor for two of Ralston Holding Company's Destination magazines. I take great pride in consistently meeting my deadlines, and in producing articles and publications that are interesting and informative.
