About the Author
What Am I Listening To?
February 19, 2004
About the Author
I've been involved with the travel publishing industry for nearly half my life, as a writer, photographer, editor, webmonkey, and, above all, as a rambling explorer.
I started out working for Random House as a writer and editor for the now-defunct Fodor's Berkeley Guides series. My first assignment took me to southern Mexico soon after the Zapatistas rose up against NAFTA. All told, I've contributed writing and photographs to a dozen Fodor's and Lonely Planet titles in the past nine years.
For three years, I produced the Webby award-winning lonelyplanet.com website and helped develop the CitySync series of handheld digital city guides. At last count, my work had been translated in a dozen languages.
2003 was my busiest year yet. FlyGuides.com launched just before I set off for ten months trapising around Antarctica, Mexico and South America. I'm awaiting publication of three new Lonely Planet titles (Bolivia, Mexico and South America on a Shoestring), which are all scheduled to hit the shelves in English by mid-2004.
