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.

Mountain Biking – Hocking Hills

It’s winter and only the very hardy head to the hills, the Hocking Hills of southeastern Ohio, to bike on the trails that wind through the woodlands and along the lake at Lake Hope State Park.  The link below will take you to the article that I wrote for Long Weekends magazine Fall/Winter issue 2011.


BONUS 1: Along the way you might see mini-waterfalls and rock ledge caves. 

BONUS 2: Some trails are shared with hikers so summer biking can be a bit hectic but in the winter the trails are less crowded and I have been told that the right amount of snow gives great traction – but not so when it gets icy.  Call ahead to talk with the park’s naturalist who loves to bike in the winter months or contact the mountain biking organizations listed below.
