I am a novelist and freelance writer/editor/photographer specializing in the arts, outdoor adventure and long-form investigative features. I have been a newspaper, magazine and website journalist for decades, having been an editor, managing editor, city editor, associate editor, copy editor, contributing editor or reporter/photographer for dozens of publications, ranging from dailies to monthlies. My stories and/or photos have been published in dozens of publications, including Robb Report, Travel+Leisure Golf, the L.A. Weekly, National Parks, Highways, the magazine created by Hugh Hefner that is, bizarrely, being banned from this list by a puritanical filter, Fish Alaska, Trailer Life and Coast to Coast.

I've had four Amazon No. 1 Bestsellers. My latest is National Parks Camping & RVing – UPDATED, available here:

I wrote a column about national parks and an outdoors adventure column for years. Songs I have written have been performed in both the United States and Canada, and I have written two novels. I have had a successful solo show of paintings and photos in Santa Monica, California. My paintings have been shown in galleries in Los Angeles and Ojai, California, in Trinidad, Colorado, Raton, New Mexico, and Paducah, Kentucky. And I overhauled (basically ghostwrote) a self-help book.
