Service Description

Traveling, living, and doing research in Latin America over 35 years has produced 3 books on El Salvador, a guide to Machu Picchu, two edited books on Mexico and peacekeeping, and dozens of articles on topics from civil war in El Salvador to points of interest in and around Niagara Falls. Along the way, I have acquired skills in travel writing, honing resumes, PowerPoint, and editing. In recent years photography has become a passion, accompanied by a growing portfolio of travel writing and photo essays.
