I started out as a world traveler, and having a world perspective gave me a lot of insight to become a travel writer. Now I am a nonprofit Executive Director, author of nine books, artist, and publisher at CCC Publishing in San Francisco. Oh yeah, and I produce a street faire in San Francisco called the "How Weird Street Faire."


Background Information

I grew up in Arlington Heights, IL. just outside Chicago, attended Illinois State University and recieved a BS degree in Business Marketing and a degree in Art. But the best education and major influence in my life was traveling around the world for 3 years solid. Now I live in San Francisco, CA where life always seems like it is in motion ...

Birth Place
Chicago, IL USA
Accomplishments

* Bay Area Travel Writers top award for "Sacred Places"
* Pinnacle Achievement Award for both "Modern Esoteric" and "Future Esoteric"
* Foreword finalist for Best Travel Guide "Sacred Places Europe" and "Sacred Places Around the World"
I have won art awards for my illustrations as a child, in high school, and collage. My first book "World Stompers" continues to rank in Amazon.com's top 100 travel guides.

Additional Information

I published my sixth book "Sacred Places North America: 108 Destinations" early in 2003, and have a second edition of "Sacred Places Around the World" coming out in early 2004. I still travel whenever I can, and just returned from the Grand Canyon, AZ and the Burning Man festival. I am going to Cambodia in January, 2003 for the ATF travel conference.
