Nashville, Tennessee



I don't do social media, so I keep this page to help keep in touch with friends.

I'm a Texan, happily homesteading in Tennessee when I'm not out and about, roaming the world.

I had a very challenging and rewarding career right out of college. I worked hard and played hard (often too hard), but was fortunate enough to succeed in spite of myself.

Today, I'm mostly retired. I still do some consulting, but I spend most of my time traveling, writing, and pointing my camera at the things I'm lucky enough to see.

I enjoy touring on the slow road, most often by bicycle or motorcycle. You see more, and experience more than with other modes of travel. Sometimes I travel light, with just some cash. Other times, I disappear off-grid with my little Airstream and enjoy some quiet time outdoors.

When not traveling, in the summer months, I tend my organic farm perched on the northwestern ridge of the Natchez Trace Parkway, just West of Nashville. I've also been known to play a little music up there. In the winter months, I find my way to warmer latitudes to catch next year's supply of fish.

I look forward to hearing from you! Until then, enjoy the winding road.

All the best,


Please be aware, electronic contacts seldom work where I spend my days (which is great problem to have), so thanks in advance for your patience.
