The Writer


I am a Marine Corps Veteran and college graduate with degrees in Liberal Arts and Physical Therapy, but I prefer writing and photography to my old professions. Chuck and I both love adventure and are currently Full-Time RVers traveling the U.S. together with our 16 year-old Yorkie-Poo, Shadow.

In 2008 I ran (and finished!) the Marine Corps Marathon for Team Running Strong, an organization founded by Billy Mills to help American Indian Youth. Some of my other achievements include cycling from Bar Harbor, ME to Key West, FL for LifeSouth Community Blood Centers as part of a national 10 person team, Five Points of Life. I have also cycled across South Africa for the South African National Blood Services. Both rides were to raise awareness about blood donation. I have also been skydiving, bungee jumping, and whitewater rafting among other adventures. I guess you could say I really enjoy a physical challenge, supporting worthwhile causes, and the great outdoors.
