A Little about me
I am a freelance writer from Wakulla Springs, Florida. on a broad range of golf and travel related subjects and was a regular contributor to Tallahassee Magazine. My work has been published in a variety of other print and online magazines including Clay Shooting USA Magazine, Divot Magazine, 850 Magazine, Golfweek.Com, GolfClubAtlas.com, and TravelPostMonthly.com.
Formerly an ad agency and billboard copywriter, I switched careers, co-designed an 18 hole golf course, and now write reviews on both golf course resorts and destination spas from a male’s point of view.
Currently conducting research to write a biography about amateur golfing great E. Harvie Ward, I enjoy discovering and writing about individuals and businesses that fly below the radar. I’m a member of Raleigh’s Triangle Area Federation and a frequent visitor to the Tallahassee Writer’s Association.
I play about 50 rounds of golf per year and my previous association with Nike and the memberships in the various golfing organizations give me the opportunity to travel throughout the United States and play a variety of both well-known and lesser known golf courses.
