I’m a tech and travel writer located near Vancouver, British Columbia. We live on a 12 acre farm with llamas, alpacas, and miniature donkeys, so if I’m not on the road documenting my travels, I’m probably hauling hay.
Over the years I’ve logged over 22,000 km during my numerous road trips to California down the I5, and I’ve decided to compile everything I’ve learned along the way into a travel book.
My current project is a travel guide book with a working title of “Are you there yet? Your guide to surviving (and enjoying) the West coast drive down the I5.”
You can contact me here on Survive Parenthood Magazine.
If you’d like my phone number to discuss a project, shoot me a tweet or email me.
