If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About this image:

Finally – SPRING! One of my recent writing assignments was an article for Buckeye Power’s Country Living magazine about one of my favorite gardening spots, Dawes Arboretum near Newark, Ohio. Their Plant Sale on the Third Saturday in May offers unique plants tested for their adaptability to the Ohio River Valley climate.

Links to Published Stories: The travel tabs to the right contain stories that I have posted to this web site. My Quick Index will help you target areas of interest from accommodations and food to kid-friendly attractions. Published stories can be accessed though the links at More Information/Working Words, also on the right – just scroll down. I am continually working on adding those links into the travel tabs and Quick Index for easier access.

 Wishing you safe and pleasant travels – ALWAYS!

        As a travel writer it is my responsibility to select the best places, events, and experiences to present to you. Most travel has been on my own though some has occurred on sponsored press trips. Travel listings here will be more informal than my published articles.
