Over the last 25 years, work and pleasure have taken me to 48 countries on five continents. Along the way I’ve met presidents and peace laureates. Interviewed artists and activists, soldiers and sheikhs. Broken bread with farmers, teachers, doctors and merchants. Knocked back beers with pastors and policy wonks. At the end of the day, I’ve slept on luxe sheets and in lumpy beds, among strangers on straw mats and under the desert stars.

Why do I do it? A passion for writing. A commitment to social change. And, yes, a little Wanderlust.

In the course of my travels I’ve shot thousands of photographs, and written hundreds of thousands of words, about the places I’ve been and the people I’ve met. I created this site to share some of them with you.
