Break Into Travel Writing Podcast

26 01 2015

Recently, I was privileged to be a guest on the Break Into Travel Writing Podcast. And was it ever a blast! I can’t tell you how much fun it was to be the interviewee as opposed to the interviewer :-) During the course of the nearly hour-long interview we discuss pretty much my entire career. We also cover my thoughts and opinions on breaking into the field, what it takes to be a good travel writer (and a bad one), my favorite things about Portland and the Northwest…..just a ton of stuff. Click here for the landing page of my episode. The podcast itself is at the bottom.

Portland By Bus

19 11 2014

Portland By Bus is a relatively new website that I’m pleased as punch to be associated with. Even if it’s just the occasional write up and photography :-) If you live in Portland or plan on visiting, the site is a dream and dare I say should be considered mandatory viewing if you plan on using public transit.

Anyway, here is the front of the site’s new rack card. A rack card is kind of an informational hand out; and this one features photography from yours truly :-) That’s Happy Hour at Samurai Blue on top and the ever-photogenic Portland Japanese Garden on the bottom.

Northwest Travel Magazine: Radiator Whiskey

1 11 2014

The latest issue of Northwest Travel Magazine features a piece I wrote about Seattle’s Radiator Whiskey. I do a lot of eating and drinking in my line of work, and encounter great places for both endeavors on a regular basis. But this spot provided one of the best all around dining experiences I’ve had in recent memory. From the article:

“In particular, omnivores that aren’t afraid to push their boundaries will find this place with much to favor. Non-traditional anatomical regions of some of your favorite animals are creatively curated to the plate by Chefs Garrison and Palagi. Small plates like the Fried Beef Lip Terrine with Dijonnaise or the Cornflake Crusted Chicken Livers with Frank’s Red Hot and aioli are perfect representations. It’s gourmet comfort food centered around a whole-animal approach that fires on all cylinders.”

To read the rest, pick up the latest issue of Northwest Travel Mag or read it online here.

Central Oregon Magazine: A Fondness for Falls

14 10 2014

In my first piece for Central Oregon Magazine I list my favorite cascades in the region. From the article:

“One could argue that the almost embarrassing abundance of natural beauty in Central Oregon is punctuated by waterfalls. Some of the best cascades and cascade hikes in the state reside in this region. Sometimes the thrill is in the quality of the hike, other times it’s the grandeur or uniqueness of the falls, or some combination thereof. On occasion the main draw is the increasingly rare chance for solitude on a trail. For all those reasons and more, this part of the state is paradise for those of us that like a good waterfall. Here are some favorites.”
