My claim to fame is that I rode a bicycle around the world and wrote some books. More about me.
A story about getting fit both physically and mentally to swim one mile. I also share the process that I created to harness different types of passion. Did you know there is more than one kind of passion? I didn’t. In retrospect, it’s a similar process that I used to cycle around the world. And, it’s a process that you can use to achieve your goals, too.  
A brief description of how I illustrated the cover of my debut sci-fi novel, Breathless. This cover has a lot of symbolism and Easter Eggs. Can you find any?
I walk you through an exercise to measure and plan your life in weeks. The free, downloadable worksheet will be an unforgettable reminder that life is short and to enjoy it while it lasts.
My girlfriend and I were returning from a three-mile hike to see Delicate Arch, the most photographed landmark in all the national parks. The sun had set, and we had a few more minutes of twilight when a loose bull crests the trail ahead.
Many years later, this question is still one of the most common questions about my journey around the world on a bicycle. Did you break a world record? The short answer is yes and no. In this article, I'll explain the rules for circumnavigating the globe according to Guinness World Records, and, more importantly, how we are all setting our own personal records every day.
Another mis-adventure. I’m more of a misadventurer than an adventurer. Though I may look like a bumbling fool, I love the surprise of leaping before I look. However, often I get much more than I bargained for as I do in this Jamaican adventure.
Will artificial intelligence be the end of authors and artists? Or will it foster a new era of creativity? Humans have been copying my work for decades. Now A.I. can do it better and faster. I share my thoughts and ask AI what it thinks.
I went on an archaeological dig uncovering the history of the Hopewell Native American Culture. The dig also dug up some memories of my great-grandmother and old childhood fear that I finally get to lay to rest.
A quick story about my cat editors with lots of pictures of them "helping" me in the office.
In this adventure, I cycle the best road in the country, Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park before the road opened to cars. I dodge a few bears and bear poops along the way. Not everyone is so lucky.
The perfect vacation versus the unexpected adventure. It's the irony of being a travel author: on the one hand, I want an adventure; on the other, I want safety and comfort and lots of umbrella drinks and fish tacos.
Do you ever wonder what is the meaning of life, and what is your purpose? I explain the meaning of life in the simplest term. Once we answer this question, we can then explore how to live a fulfilling life or, in other words, how to turn dreams into reality.
