What’s Next…

Since last week’s news, I’ve been asked this question quite a bit: What’s next?

Magic 8-Ball Answer: Reply hazy, try again.

I still love telling stories, through words and images, that dig deep beneath the surface, providing an audience with an enjoyable experience, leaving them with a deeper understanding of a subject.

I still love motorsports. My trip to Watkins Glen as a fan confirmed that. There’s no better way to show one’s mettle than with a race car.

The who, what, when, and where to how I combine those two elements into something viable, and to what degree, is the hazy part.

I’ve had preliminary talks with several outlets. Many more conversations to come. It may take some time to sort through everything, but I hear patience is a virtue. Stay tuned.
