I am a freelance writer and a former staff reporter for the Wall Street Journal.
Most recently, I have written travel stories for the WSJ about the social dynamics of group tours, Americans retiring in Portugal and ocean swimming in Turkey. I also looked at what it's like to work remotely from a tropical island using the new digital nomad visas.
My stories about life during the pandemic appeared in the Los Angeles Times and Vogue. I have written personal essays and humor for both the WSJ and the New York Times covering subjects such as lost tortoises, downsizing and New York co-op boards.
