Slow Family Travel Expert

I am a lawyer, and a self-proclaimed slow family travel expert. I’ve appeared on podcasts and have guest written blog articles for other sites. I can offer comment on how to plan for long trips with your family. These would be trips where the kids are likely homeschooled and the parents are either on sabbatical or are working remotely.

I can also share dozens of travel hacks and tricks to ensure a successful trip for you and your family. Leading up to the trip, I have money-saving blog posts, and tips for making travel a larger part of your overall budget.

I will give you step-by-step guides on how to rent out your primary residence, and hacks to purchase foreign currency easily while you prepare for your trip.

Over the past decade, I’ve traveled with my wife Jessica and our two children to numerous other countries and off-the-beaten-path destinations in the US.
