I write things. I travel a lot. I am grateful to do both of those things together a lot of the time. I’m from New Mexico. I have also lived in Texas, Boston, China, Ireland and Prague. Home is now London. After 7.5 years as the North & Central Asia Editor at travel publisher Lonely Planet, I returned to freelance life to pursue my new projects, sustainable tourism and night-sky consulting and writing. I’m an excellent communicator and am passionate about helping humans understand one another and ourselves better, and finding a sustainable way forward for life on Earth. I love looking at the stars, writing verse, music, taking very long walks, all things China, mysteries, spiritual things, contemplation and beer. I write about a lot of those topics for myself here.
