I’ve lived a varied life as a designer, writer, photographer – and for the last decade, as a teacher. I’ve traveled extensively, which is reflected in my personal work over the years. Bicycling, like walking, is to me a better way to explore my world. Travel by planes, trains, and automobiles leaves me with the feeling of a tenuous connection – at best – to places and people and events. Too, the mode of two-wheeled transportation has a magnetic pull on me; the simplicity and elegance of bicycle mechanics and mechanisms reminds me of the journey… and for me, the journey begins long before I pedal out of the driveway.
