Hello! I'm Lisa Waterman Gray, a freelance writer and photographer from the Kansas City area. I write about and photograph must-visit destinations, culinary finds, and eco-friendly lodging that will engage and delight readers. I also craft personal and business profiles of fascinating people.
I've worked with international, national, Midwestern, and Kansas City print and online clients, I also provide editing services, and create marketing copy.
Need a speaker? I've worked with students, tourism professionals and civic groups. Check out several of my radio and TV interviews:
- FOX 4 Kansas City (about my book; see below)
- KKFI radio (at 6.35 to 27 minutes)
- Wanderlust and Gusto/BlogTalkRadio (2:25-19 minutes)
"We were fortunate to have Lisa Waterman Gray speak to our Kansas City Delta Gamma Alumnae Group. Lisa came with a PowerPoint presentation highlighting her Kansas travels…and brought the travel guide to life. Lisa was a wonderful speaker and a great ambassador for the state."
