I am an award-winning journalist, writing coach, and heart of palm lover living in the mountains of Costa Rica's Central Valley. After years working for The Tico Times, I recently started a new position as the editor of Nature Landings. I also freelance for National Geographic Traveler, Lonely Planet, and Jetsetter. In my free time I hang out in jungles and go to the beach with my puppy Osa, who is named after the remote and untamed peninsula where he was born.
