Mr. McDonell is sponsored by Bon Voyage Travel
McDonell is a prominent award-winning journalist who has served as the managing editor of Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, and Newsweek; and as editor in chief of both Esquire and Men's Journal. He founded several magazines, including Outside, Smart, and Rocky Mountain. He is also a novelist and poet, who has written and produced for film and television. In his revealing memoir "The Accidental Life," McDonell talks about what really happens when editors and writers work with deadlines ticking (or drinks on the bar). His stories about the people and personalities he’s known are both heartbreaking and bitingly funny—playing “acid golf” with Hunter S. Thompson, practicing brinksmanship with David Carr and Steve Jobs, working the European fashion scene with Liz Tilberis, pitching TV pilots with Richard Price.
