Mark Johanson is an American travel writer, editor, video presenter and photojournalist based in Santiago, Chile. Born and raised in Virginia, he set off as an adult around the world, calling four countries home before hunkering down in Chile in 2014. His articles on travel, culture, food, business and the environment have appeared in magazines (GQ, Men’s Journal, Newsweek), newspapers (The Guardian, Chicago Tribune), digital publications (Punch, Narratively), and global news outlets (Bloomberg, CNN, BBC). He has also penned several Lonely Planet travel guides and hardcovers, worked as a presenter for Lonely Planet’s video channel, served as a travel expert for NPR and been featured as an authority on travel writing in books such as Travel Writing 2.0.

Renown author Rolf Potts recently interviewed Mark about his life and work. You can read the transcript here.

Mark is currently out on the road experiencing/enduring the wild world of freelance journalism. Drop him a line and say hi. Unlike this possibly rabid monkey he encountered in Bali, he does not bite.
