Travel Writing


LucasPeru1As a travel writer, I’ve explored the ruins of Machu Picchu, rafted over a waterfall in New Zealand, and tracked polar bears near the Arctic Circle. I’m what you’d call an energetic fellow.

In 2013, I was assigned to write a humorous travel news column called “What in the World?” for The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, and for the Vancouver Sun.

My travel articles have appeared in more than 30 outlets, including:

I’ve contributed to travel guidebooks such as:

  • Fodor’s Vancouver & Victoria
  • Frommer’s Far & Wide
  • GPP Travel’s Vancouver CityGuide

At the North American Travel Journalists Association (NATJA) Awards, I’ve won two gold medals, three silver medals, and four bronze medals. My story on Ufa, Russia took first place at the Travel Media Association of Canada (TMAC) awards.

I won silver at the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Foundation’s Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Competition for an Easter Island story. I was a Western Magazine Awards finalist for my Westworld feature, On Frozen Pond.”

I’ve served on the TMAC British Columbia board since 2009, and am an active member of both NATJA and SATW.
