If you’re working on a story related to family travel, I’d love to be of service. My views on travel have been featured in The Washington Post, INSIDER, Huffington Post, Time Out New York, POPSUGARBrit + Co, Wanderlust Travel Magazine, TravelPulse, HOTELS Magazine, and more.

I have extensive on-air experience and have appeared on CNN, MSNBC, and NPR. I’m comfortable doing live in-studio, pre-taped and Skype TV and radio interviews, as well as podcasts and Facebook Live (or social media) segments.

You can find my bio here.
