Greg is a freelance writer, tour operator and travel planner based out of Siem Reap, Cambodia, and Manila, Philippines. Greg began his writing career in the late '90s in Ukraine, working as a journalist and later editor-in-chief of the Kyiv Post, an English-language weekly. As a freelance travel writer, he has contributed to some 35 Lonely Planet titles, mostly in Eastern Europe and Asia. In addition to writing, he now organizes adventure trips in Cambodia and Palawan (Philippines) through his tour company, Bearcat Travel.
Born in California and raised in the northeast United States, Greg got his first taste of international life at the age of 12 when he lived in Chile for a half year with his dad. He graduated from university with a degree in international development, but it was journalism that would ultimately lure him overseas. Greg’s travel articles have been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, the South China Morning Post, BBC.com and the Toronto Globe & Mail, among many other publications. Accounts of his Lonely Planet trips over the years are at www.mytripjournal.com/bloomblogs.
