I am from Chicago by birth and by choice, I am happy to be on the road exploring new destinations, especially in February, often the coldest of the winter months of the city. I have bachelor's and master's degrees in journalism, and I've spent much of my career in news working for The Associated Press and Chicago Tribune. Over the past decade, I have focused on exploring the world as a writer and independent travel photographer. Highlights include tracking and photographing wild animals in Kenya, documenting monarch butterflies hibernates on a mountain in Mexico and spending a night in a tent in the Sahara desert.
