I'm a writer and musician based in Oakland, California and I've authored over a dozen titles for Lonely Planet including guides to California, the Caribbean and Latin America. I also married my obsessive interest in cycling and travel as an author of Lonely Planet’s Epic Bike Rides of the World. In other loosely professional pursuits, I've cycled across China and Southern Africa as a guide with Tour d’Afrique, played third chair percussion in an Orlando theme park and accompanied modern dance classes. I'm fortunate to make my living writing about things I love: music, travel, and social justice.
Ask me about traveling and cycling.
