Executive Vice President & General Counsel , North American Travel Journalists Association
I was introduced to serious photography by an old pro who specialized in classic B&W images. He had me study Weston, Adams, Cartier-Bresson, Gene Smith and many others. It's a journey, not a destination. I have been fortunate to be able to travel most of my adult life and have enjoyed reading about travelers' experiences for as long as I can remember: The Owl and the Pussycat, Zorba the Greek, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, The Old Patagonia Express, Travels with Charley to name a very few. My writing has been a bit more introspective than many travel journalists and I hesitate to impose my musings on a reader, but I love it when the opportunity arrives that allows me to put thoughts and visions together in a piece that seems appropriate for publication.
