I’m a writer, editor and photographer (though not always in that order) who grew up in Great Britain, Mexico and Peru (in exactly that order) before finally settling down in the States.
Where I live now: Twin Cities, Minnesota. It’s a wonderful place—if you don’t mind frostbite.
Where I’d most like to live: Paris, France.
Childhood ambitions: I really, really wanted to be an archaeologist. But then I discovered that I really, really needed a paycheck.
Dream job: To be a writer/photographer for National Geographic Traveler. Or maybe an archaeologist.
Hobbies: Traveling; playing the piano; composing bad songs; typography; repairing broken squirrels; riding horses; getting lost in the woods; more traveling; philately; graphic design; tweezing.
Number of lives left: Six. I survived falling three stories, being hit by a truck, and being drop-kicked by a horse. (And I can still walk!)
Little-known facts: I’m a native Spanish speaker; I speak French with a Spanish accent; I’m much taller than I appear; I once got a parking ticket in Patagonia.
Best advice I ever got: “Walk it off, crybaby!”
Personal motto: Don’t worry—it’ll grow back.
