My Portfolio 

I've written dozens of travel stories over the years, for the Washington Post, GQ, and other newspapers, magazines, and websites. I write a lot about my adopted hometown, Washington, D.C., but have ventured from Wickenburg, Arizona to Moscow. I've also written and created social and video content about food and drink. Here's a sampling.
