One discovery I made that helped. "Enable Circles in Navigation" in the advanced settings. Why that is not automatically set to on, I have not idea.

My movie gig is over... sadly! I spent 5-days as an extra on the #benaffleck  film "Live by Night". It was hard work, but a truly awesome experience to witness, first hand, the enormity of the production machine. I learned a lot and met a bunch or really great people. Thanks to all!

We all need a little space in all things. It's even more important for cyclists.

Most people in Pennsylvania are pretty good about the 4 foot law. Every once in a while though you get that one person.....sure its the same everywhere.

For health reasons, comfort at work, and posture, I use a stand-up desk. But I must admit that this looks like an awesome alternative. #napdesk   #standupdesk  
Everyone should be napping at work. And why not do it in style?

would actually be good for dorm rooms or maybe a child's room that doesn't have much space. There's even a flatscreen.

I'm not blind, but I do have some serious vision issues, especially on my left side. I'll bet this could keep me from bumping into people in crowded areas.

In my downtown, of Jacksonville, FL we have many ragged and damaged slabs of ugly concrete protruding from the earth, where once stood a useful and often beautiful building. These concrete ruins blight the complexion of our bold city. We also have a scarcity of bike access. We need big change! 

Amsterdam had the same problem not long ago. Now they’ve constructed parking garages made for bikes--not cars, and turned parking lots into patios, parks, pedestrian malls, and outdoor markets. It wasn’t easy, but they did it. What a great way to make a loud and dingy city magical again! #magicalcity #Jacksonville
Pictures from the turn of the 20th century to today show how Amsterdam slowlyand intentionallychanged its car culture. Your city can do it, too.

It can, and hopefully will happen. Remind me to not invite you to parts of Japan. Concrete abounds! Nice roads for riding, though.

content . marketing . serious cycling

I’ve been a commercial writer and marketing consultant for over 25-years and have worked with hundreds of astute marketers from around the world, many with complex product offerings. My storytelling skill set is comprehensive and includes:

  • a Da Vincian curiosity
  • listening, questioning and critical thinking skills
  • superior writing, editing and oral skills
  • content strategy and story development
  • video scriptwriting
  • an energy for creative collaboration
  • a strategic vision for social media
  • a practiced eye for effective design
  • mechanical and technological aptitude

Here is a Partial List of Organizations I've worked with over the years. It illustrates the diversity of my experience in solving marketing communications problems.

I’ve been active in social media for 13-years. As it continues to evolve and expand exponentially, I’ve moved more of my efforts to Google Plus. The G+ platform is both powerful and manageable. From here you have a connection to most everything I do.

I'm also an avid cyclist with a penchant for long-distance, unsupported rides. I advocate for cycling, mentor anyone willing to listen, and believe the bike can heal the body and awaken the mind. (I’m living proof of that.) I write and edit the blog Cycling Nirvana, where I share stories about serious cycling for the young at heart. I also discuss issues of safety, endurance, and health and fitness for people of a certain age, late-bloomers and other enthusiasts. Additionally, I own the G+ Page, Cycling Nirvana/BRIEFS, where I bring you short bits of knowledge to make your cycling life safer and more enjoyable.

I’m currently writing a book called: The Simplest Machine. It explores diverse styles of bicycle riding, the mental and physical benefits associated with a cycling lifestyle, and the adventure that cycling can be.

Here are a few things that interest me:

  • good writing/storytelling
  • social media marketing
  • scriptwriting
  • creativity
  • design
  • photography
  • technology
  • science
  • resilience/self-reliance
  • freelancing/soloing
  • older athletes
  • endurance over 50
  • health & fitness
  • longevity
  • cycling
  • bicycles
  • cycling advocacy
  • cycling education
