Keri Bridgwater

Originally from Cornwall, England, Keri Bridgwater lived in Sweden, New Zealand and Colorado before landing in San Diego over a decade ago. Interesting people and places top the list when it comes to assignments, and she has profiled an eclectic range of figures from Nicky Hilton and Hollywood’s most in-demand “good witch” to working cowboys in Santa Barbara County.

An avid traveler, her favorite adventures over the years include a two-night felucca trip on The Nile, crossing the Salar de Uyuni in a Toyota Land Cruiser, snowboarding in Hokkaido, Japan, and a two-month surf trip along Mexico’s Pacific Coast (that featured a ‘how am I not dead cartel run-in’ on the way to buy a used surfboard). Her work has featured in Yoga Journal, Marie Claire, SFGATE, Fodor’s and London’s Evening Standard, among other outlets.
