Thank you for visiting my website.

I’m Mike. You probably don’t know me, but if we share some of the same interests, then you might enjoy what my website has to offer.

Choose a section from the options below, or, if nothing sounds interesting, keep scrolling to watch a relaxing sunset from Oahu’s Waikiki Beach.


A selection of articles I’ve written. Some are long-winded. Others merely introduce a video or a collection of photos. Topics include: skiing, hiking, travel, and more. I hope you’ll find them fun, interesting, and/or informative.


A portfolio of my favorite landscape photos, from Adirondack Park in New York state to an unmaintained trail on the island of Kauai. I hope you find some inspiration in the beauty of the landscapes.

A Skier’s Journal

A Skier’s Journal is a book I wrote about my first ski season in Utah. It’s about more than that, but that ski season is the basis upon which I relate other experiences (spoiler alert: also mostly about skiing).

The view from Snowbird’s Hidden Peak was what first captivated me, but the more I learned about the quality of the skiing there, the more devoted I became. I daydreamed over its trail map and the images in its brochures. I had to get back there someday.
