About Me…


I’m Alicia, thrift store junkie, voracious reader and enthusiastic napper. I adore black coffee, craft beer, street food and impossibly fancy pastries, any time, day or night. I collect ideas, passport stamps and giant sunglasses and I love exploring new places, impromptu dance parties and late night conversations.

I’m a freelance writer and photographer who loves tracking down uniquely local stories and immersive, off the beaten path travel experiences in the Midwest, the prairie provinces of Canada and underrated destinations around the world. I’m based in West Fargo, North Dakota, but I’ll follow a story wherever it takes me.

I cover craft beer, travel, art, entertainment, history and breaking news for Thomson Reuters, Food Network, USA Today, Delta Sky Magazine, AAA Living, Midwest Living, Beer Advocate, trivago Magazine, Matador Network, craftbeer.com and numerous other publications. I record a regular travel segment for KFGO-AM and kfgo.com and I’ve contributed to Minnesota Public Radio. My first book, titled “North Dakota Beer: A Heady History,” was published in 2017.

Let’s Collaborate!

Want to partner up, show off your art or tell people about your business or event? Want to give your take on life, style, culture and travel in your region?

Comment below,  find me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or contact me and tell me what you’re passionate about and how you’d like to work together.  I feature regular guest posts from other creative people and I’m open to collaborations through giveaways, live event sponsorships, event planning and hosting, product reviews, guest posts and social media campaigns.

Collaborations with national and international brands and organizations will be considered, as long as they benefit my readers. I only collaborate with brands and causes that I love — and ones that I think will make my readers happy.

A complete media kit is available upon request.
