Diane is a Durham, NC-based journalist who writes about travel, the outdoors, and people’s lives. She’s most interested in what she calls preservation travel — travel that preserves cultures and community, history, buildings, and the environment. Writing about farms, agriculture, and food covers all those interests.
You can find her work regularly in Ode Magazine, The Boston Globe and the News & Observer (NC), and it also appears in the Washington Post travel section, Southern Living magazine, and other national and regional publications. In 2008, Diane won a national Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award for a New York Times travel story.
Diane is available to present an entertaining and educational “Farm Fresh” show in photos (35 minutes long), and as a step-on guide for farm/food tours in North Carolina. She also works as a public relations and agritourism consultant. Occasionally she teaches travel writing at Duke University Continuing Studies or privately.
