I’m occasionally available for speaking gigs on the art (and practicalities) of travel writing and succeeding as a freelance journalist, as well as on the countries in which I have particular expertise: Vietnam, Uruguay, Northern Ireland, and Colombia.
People often contact me asking for advice on how to become a travel writer. I sometimes conduct paid consultations with aspiring travel writers; email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want more information. Or, save yourself money and check out these interviews where I talk about how I make a living:

I’m a highly experienced editor and copywriter. I’ve held senior positions at websites and magazines, and provided top-notch copywriting work for companies like BWIN, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Four Seasons. I’m especially interested in editing and copywriting assignments connected with travel, productivity, and career management.
