As a 27-year travel industry veteran, I’m frequently quoted in both industry and consumer publications.

Cruise Maven began in 2001 and by 2007 was featured in several national newspapers as a trusted source for cruise and travel advice.

My goal is to entertain, inspire and encourage readers to travel, through my photographs, stories, and unbiased travel recommendations.

Featuring fresh and original content, Cruise Maven has shown consistent monthly growth in every aspect of analytics including users, sessions, duration and shares.

Cruise Maven offers advertisers a multi-facet approach to brand awareness through writing, photography, social media (Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube) and podcast.

Cruise Maven was voted one of USAToday’s Top Ten Readers Choice Awards for Best Cruise Blog in 2014-16.


When I travel, either independently or through a sponsor, my goal is to encourage readers to experience the cruise ships, riverboats and trains, promote the destinations and increase product knowledge of my travel partners.
