What My Clients/ Readers Say...

Richard, I enjoy the way "Everyday Tourist" combines travel tips for unique places with insightful urban planning and design commentary. Both Leila and I look forward to our Everyday Tourist email every Sunday, we call it the "Sunday White Paper." Charles Olfert, Architect, aobdbt architecture

"I find your “investigative” sleuthing makes me re-think and re-examine my urban environment.  I sometimes find myself in a situation re-examining a streetscape or a public space and wonder how the Everyday Tourist might interpret the situation as compared to how I am seeing it…" R. Wright, ROAN Consulting

"This is a fantastic piece about Lincoln Park (Chicago)! Love your detail and the places you mention are just perfect. You captured the essence of living there - and I can say that because I did for 4 years!"  Laurie McCarville, Regional Public Relations Manager, Chicago

“I'm delighted that you discovered Clement Street!  This is one of the most diverse and authentic streets of the city and I wish more visitors would find it.”  Laurie Armstrong, Director, Media Relations U.S. & Canada, San Francisco Travel

“Just read Richard’s article… couldn’t be more thrilled – it was awesome!  You really seemed to capture Spokane’s charm.” Pam Scott, Director of Corporate Communications, Red Lion Hotels Corporation
