A longtime Lonely Planet travel writer, Greg has rumbled in the jungles of Bolivia, trekked across Spain on the Camino de Santiago, interviewed presidents and grammy-award winners, dodged flying salmon in Alaska and climbed mountains (big and small) in between. Greg's Lonely Planet guidebook work includes Mexico, Yucatan, Cancun Encounter, Chile, Alaska, Colorado, Puerto Vallarta & Pacific Mexico, Honduras, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Peru, Malaysia, Kaua’I, USA, Southwest USA Trips, Central America on a Shoestring and South America on a Shoestring. He also worked on LP's coffee table books, including Bluelist, USA Book and Great Adventures.
Greg has written guides (for the other guys) to Costa Rica, Guatemala, California, Chile, Peru and Bolivia.
He is an expert on international development, food, wine, Latin America, sustainable travel, skiing and adventure sports, and has also contributed as an authoritative expert for such media outlets as Newsweek, The Washington Post, BBC Radio, Rick Steve’s Radio and Let’s Travel Radio.
A former commissioning editor for Lonely Planet, Greg wrote Lonely Planet's first guidelines on sustainable travel writing, and his work has been featured in more than 40 major publications worldwide, including National Geographic Traveler, Conde Naste Traveller and Wild Blue Yonder. When he's not on the road for LP, Greg writes speeches for the United Nations, hangs out with his baby girl, and tries to have a new adventure every day.
