Thanks for stopping by! I’m a Florida-based adventure travel journalist, photographer, athlete and on-camera host. My hope is that this little corner of the interwebs will spark an interest in travel or fitness, give you epic ideas for your next adventure (cliff camping anyone?) and, most of all, inspire.

As a multimedia storyteller since 1998, my job is to scour the globe for the amazing and obscure, interview people I admire (Kerri Walsh Jennings, Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz to name a few) and have the opportunity to film and photograph some of the most incredible places on earth. When I’m not zigzagging around the planet—learning to pilot an airplane above Tampa Bay, swimming with sharks in Tahiti or spending some QT with penguins in Antarctica—I’m writing about unusual excursions, fitness, health/wellness and extraordinary people.

I’m big on exploring and anything requiring movement, so I feel fortunate to have a career that incorporates my passions like surfing, climbing, hiking and scuba diving. So far, assignments for USA Today, CNN.com, NBC.comfoxnews.com, espnW.com, GoEscape, Green Living, Scuba Diving, Modern Woman, Destination Weddings & Honeymoons and Islands have taken me to 32 different countries on all seven continents.

I work from home (and on the road) writing articles and producing video content for newspapers, magazines, online publications and major brands. I also partner with brands on blogging campaigns, creative advertising ideas and promoting their products/services through social media.

I’d love to collaborate with you whether you are an editor, a content marketer, a tourism board or a brand looking to further communicate a story in a personable and entertaining way. In the meantime, please feel free to connect @wordzillapics. If you’re an active traveler, fitness fanatic or simply a lover of words and images, chances are we’ve got a lot in common.
