Visit Salt Lake — Travel Writing

Utah is a pretty great state.

No matter how far I wander or wherever I live, Utah feels most like home. Growing up in Salt Lake City, I wasn't conscious of the juxtaposition of city living and immediate outdoor access. The value of Utah living only became apparent to me once I departed for college in Washington state. Bringing car loads of college friends home every Christmas and spring break helped me realize how much I enjoy showcasing what make Utah such a special place. Nowadays, I relish sharing my local knowledge via the Visit Salt Lake and Ski Utah branches of Utah’s Office of Tourism.

Below is a sample of just some of the articles I’ve authored for Visit Salt Lake. If you haven’t visited Salt Lake it’s time to remedy that situation.

What I enjoy most about writing for Visit Salt Lake is the opportunity to revisit places I loved in my youth and to meet new people (and animals) around Utah.
