In a full and rewarding professional life as a writer, editor, business owner (Creative Brilliance Advertising, Marketing, Publicity & PR — for 25 years), strategic market communicator, newspaper stringer, Journalism Instructor (University of Wisconsin-Madison and Colorado State University), and high-tech blogger / influencer (Upstream Commerce/Flipkart High-Tech firms — for 8 years), Naomi’s been incredibly lucky to have built a parallel career as an independent travel journalist.
An avid angler, horseback rider, soft-adventurer, and now “mature traveler,” Naomi continues to seek fishing, nature, outdoor, and Indigenous experiences to go with her writings about destination travel.
“I try to apply a discerning eye, great attention to detail, accuracy — and, perhaps most importantly — a sense of humor & humility…”
“I will consider trip & research invitations, news announcements, products for review, etc… but will never promise a positive story… or a story at all, for that matter… if it doesn’t meet our standards for audience interest and value — and highest ethical considerations.”
