So here’s the thing

binoculars at the ocean city inletBetween content creation for my day job, blogging for fun, freelancing and being an occasional Twitter troll I keep pretty busy. This is kind of a clearinghouse for my work. As I understand it, you only are supposed to put your best work in a portfolio, but it seems like a lot of sorting. Plus, there’s no telling what’s going to go over and what isn’t. Instead, this is kind of a portal to what I do in the various areas in which I do it.

Also, I’m pretty proud of my photos and reviews as a Google Local Guide. My photo views topped 2 million in March of 2017. I try and take photos of places people tend to miss because I go on backroad adventures. I’m also a Google Trusted Photographer, which means I can take 360 photos and apply them directly to Google Maps. It gives me an incredibly unrealistic satisfaction, and has the bonus of being an absolute blast.

Finally, nearly all of the photos here are mine, those that aren’t belong to my lovely and talented Meesus. Please do your best not to steal from either of us. We often are happy to share. Reach out and ask.

The upshot is…

Every few weeks, I send out an update of the things I’ve written that I think you’ll like. Subscribe to my email list and tell me what kinds of stuff you would like to see. I’ll write about them (or video or photograph or talk about them) more often.
