I am an Indianapolis, Ind.-based freelance travel writer who contributes to FoxNews.com, US News & World Report, USA Today 10Best.com and more. I frequently write about adventure travel, hotel features and trends, family travel with my school-age boys, and general travel news and trends.

I especially love to be active when traveling, hiking, biking, kayaking and more.

I have a passion for travel and am still in disbelief that I’ve been able to fly free and travel for less to so many amazing places around the world using miles and points. I want to share that amazing gift with other families!

My favorite U.S. haunts? Disney World, the Colorado Rockies, anywhere in California and Chicago, but we love to go anywhere and everywhere!

Overseas? So far, Paris and Rome have stolen my heart :-). Thanks for stopping by and reading! Happy travels!
