I keep myself in fairly good shape, as I hike, cycle and work out. I like to find mountain streams to swim in and hot springs, which are more in the West than East, to soak in. I mostly write for newspapers and websites, but I have also written books.
Politically, I'm not a Trump fan but am open to most as long as they don't refer to journalists as "scum" and liberals as "libtards."
I began my career as a sportswriter and branched off into writing about travel, politics and business later. I’ve had some photos exhibited in a gallery and sold at art fairs.
