WHO WE ARE
We are writers, photographers, social media gurus, influencers and sometimes videographers, who believe there is more to marketing than just getting your client and product out there; you have to get it in front of the right people in the right way. Storytelling and informative information are one of the keys to our success.
Keryn Means, our publisher, launched a little website back in 2011, which has grown into multiple publications.
Keryn Means has worn several hats in throughout her career that have brought her to this point. From journalist to book publishing production manager, associate art director at a city magazine to wedding and portrait photographer, and even a stint as an architecture firm office manager during grad school, sometimes she feels like she has done it all (and yes, she has waited tables).
As a freelance writer, television news travel contributor and online publisher at WalkingOnTravels.com, DCTravelMag.com and Twist Travel Magazine, she has been able to tell stories on a variety of platforms. She opened Walking On Media LLC, to help clients create an authentic message resonating with millennial and Gen X travelers through influencer vetting, custom online content, dynamic photos and social media.
Her work has been seen in Travel Age West magazine, Thrillist.com, ParentMap Magazine, Seattle's Child magazine, TravelMindset.com and many more websites looking for quality, well-researched content and photography. She is also a travel segment contributor on Good Morning Washington (ABC), and has been called upon as a travel expert for national news segments.
Keryn Means has an undergraduate degree in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design, along with a MSJ in Journalism from the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism.
The combination of these two degrees, along with several years of work experience in the photography, magazine and publishing industries led Keryn to start Walking On Travels in 2011. This award-winning family travel site still gives hope to active parents who don't see kids as a roadblock to travel, but an excuse to explore.
In 2017, she launched Twist Travel Magazine, a print and digital publication that brings travel back into the home, through food, decor and travel features. In 2019, DCTravelMag.com went live, bringing local DC information to visitors.
Keryn has laughed at the naysayers by bringing her two boys to far off lands like China, Hong Kong, Japan, Hawaii, back and forth across the USA, Mexico, Canada, and even across Europe. Keryn loves to encourage families to take that first step out the door, the hardest step of all. After all, do you really want to wait until your kids go to college to explore? We sure don't!
