World Traveler, Writer & Photographer

A Baby Boomer who loves travel, travel writing, photography, teaching digital camera and photography, and sharing travel tips and stories.

Travel stories for boomers

I am a 50-something world traveler, writer and photographer. I am desperately in love with my husband, David, of 20 years. And I dearly love my grandchildren. I love New York City, too, almost as much as the aforementioned humans.

I write and teach for a living as I am semi-retired. I have done everything from being a rock and roll reporter to a private investigator. I have driven a milk truck and I have written and produced murder mystery theater.

I get bored easily and I hate liars. I love candid people and will spend time with almost anyone, especially strangers. I have chatted with the Mafia as easily as I chat with foreign children. I don't care who you are; as long as you are interested in sharing a part of yourself (in a captivating fashion), I will be an avid listener. So far, very few people in my travels, have disappointed me.

I design jewelery as a serious hobby, and I maintain an active web site: http://www.visualsbysheree.com. I am self-taught in most areas including digital photography and web design.

I have been an entrepreneur my whole life and I stand firmly on a work ethic of "give it all you've got, no matter how much it hurts."
