I love sunflowers and the way the air smells after a hard rain. Nothing has amazed me more than sitting on the African savanna, in total darkness, under a sea of pulsating stars. My favorite thing to do is listen…and learn. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories, preferably over food, and wine — somewhere other than here. Did I mention that I’m obsessed with food? Travel was a hobby, but has become the focal point of my professional endeavors as a writer. I guess we all seek to find a platform to be heard… and seen. This is mine. Hope you enjoy the journey…
