Welcome! My journalism career and curiosity about the world started while working as a copy boy for the Wall Street Journal. I’ve logged over a million miles in my travels across the globe, from Morocco to China, up to the Arctic Circle and across Southern Africa. In addition to overseas destinations, I often feature destinations around America focused on people, culture, arts, music, history, food, wine and spirits.

Most of the posts featured here are expanded versions of my regular KCX/NPR Digital Media Podcast shows from the Lowell Thomas Award-winning podcast and on-air show, Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer, featured on KCBX.ORGiTunesNPR One (app), NPR.ORG Podcast DirectoryStitcher.com, player.fm (UK) and other podcast channels around the world.

Thanks for being here–Enjoy the trip!
