About Me:
Born to British parents in Canada but spending most of my formative years in the United States, I schlepped back and forth across the Atlantic frequently with my mum and dad until heading off to college. In college, I had the opportunity to spend a few months in Kenya and I found myself hooked on discovering cultures, new places, and taking on adventures. Since then, my travels have taken me to all seven continents. As a writer, I have authored more than 16 books and penned many hundreds of feature articles over the years. My travel writing, photography, and videography appears primarily on HITravelTales.com, a website/travel blog I operate in partnership with my wife, Therese Iknoian.

My articles have appeared in Outside, Backpacker, Men's Journal, Men's Health, Field and Stream, Outdoor Life, The Christian Science Monitor, the San Jose Mercury News, and others. My published books (some of which are actually still in print) include No Shit There I Was, Compass & Map Navigator, Facing The Extreme, and Camping For Dummies.
