Hello, and welcome to The Sober Journey. I am a writer, blogger and media consultant living in the Sierra Mountains near Lake Tahoe with my wife and our two dogs, Moonpie and Biscuit.

I am also a recovering alcoholic who has been sober for more than 12 years. My main passion in life is writing about addiction and recovery. 

Like many addicts, I've struggled my entire life with anxiety, fear, and depression. My goal is to share with as many people as possible what has worked for me in sobriety so that others can benefit and learn from my experience. 


The Sober Journey represents what I’ve learned so that struggling addicts, newcomers, and anyone else can successfully explore their own path in recovery.

This is not a site just for 12-Steppers. I believe that there is more than one way to get and stay sober. Everyone is invited to participate and share in the journey.

Thank you for joining me and feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas you wish to share.
