About Me

“You’re traveling alone? Aren’t you lonely?” I hear this countless times while traveling solo and it’s always in a tone of amazement. I simply reply with a smile and, “I’m traveling alone, not lonely.”

Originally from Western New York in the suburbs of Buffalo, a hiking trail led me to a career path in tourism where I’ve worked for more than 20 years including 10 years with a park management company in Yellowstone, Death Valley and Everglades National Park. Business and personal trips have led me throughout the United States along with visits to Brazil, Canada and Europe. Curiosity led me to Afghanistan, Cuba and Japan to understand the cultures. I currently live in Southwest Florida and with easy access to the Southeastern U.S., I enjoy discovering the region’s quirky, outdoor and offbeat attractions.
