Author, Travel Journalist & Content Marketing Writer
I was born in the Pacific Northwest region of the US , but the islands were calling, and so I went. I arrived in The Bahamas in 2009 and soon after began building my website with a focus on Bahamas travel and lifestyle, which I called Out Island Life. This eventually led to writing a travel guidebook on The Bahamas, as well as writing Bahamas-inspired travel articles for international publications.
