Books, bicycling, and taking the lane

I made zines as a teenager, and started again in 2010 on a lark and kept going. Now I publish the quarterly Taking the Lane and several other titles per year, by myself and other authors.

I love every aspect of publishing. Every day is something different—writing, editing, working with collaborators, designing, production scheduling, addressing envelopes, or going for a long bike ride to dream up the next big idea.

The goal of all my publications is to inspire, motivate, and serve as a resource for everyone out there who rides a bicycle for transportation or is even thinking about it.
