New York Times

This summer I hit the road, traveling across Tennessee, Wyoming, and Minnesota, armed with a checklist of Americana I wanted to experience. Find out how it went in my cover story for the New York Times.

Condé Nast Traveller India

Could the key to world peace lie in Spain’s history? I journeyed across the country by train and found some unexpected things along the way. Read all about it in Condé Nast Traveller India’s seventh-anniversary issue.

New York Times

I wrote about a 1,500-mile road trip across Namibia for the New York Times, and the story was featured on the cover of the travel section. I also won a gold Lowell Thomas Award for Foreign Travel for the piece.


Saveur is one of my favorite magazines out there — they do such a great job of covering food and travel in a literary way — and I wrote this feature on Durban’s Indian food for their Origins issue. I later won awards from the Society of American Travel Writers and the South Asian Journalists’ Association for this piece.
