Cycling in the Shenandoah Valley
Owner, OV3 Media
- What city/county do you live in?
- Stuarts Draft, Augusta County
- How long have you lived in the Shenandoah Valley?
- 10 Years
- What made you decide to make the move to the Valley?
- Growing up in West Virginia, my wife and I have always valued family and the mountains. We can be close to each here in the Valley. The small communities up and down the Valley remind us of home and we love building new relationships in each area we visit.
- What is your favorite Shenandoah Valley activity?
- The Shenandoah Valley is an all-seasons region. No matter the time of year we love to travel to visit one of many outdoor destinations. Creativity is found in all areas. The small businesses, artisans, coffee shops and restaurants are always a must each time we travel the country roads.
- Describe your/your family’s ideal day in your community?
- Living in such a small community, each time we take our dogs for a walk or go for a bike ride, we can see someone we know. Stopping to have conversation and connect is meaningful to us and makes for a great day.
- What is the view from your back porch?
- The amazing Blue Ridge Mountains, Blue Ridge Parkway and Appalachian Trail.
- What is your view from your office window?
- Depends on the day! One day it’s the historic Main Street of Staunton while meeting with a client to record a podcast at the Staunton Innovation Hub and the next it’s the inside of the new coffee shop to discuss how I can help promote business owners through a new audio platform. But a real favorite of mine is my front yard while I edit audio files where I can watch my daughters play basketball or skateboard.
- What would you share with someone who was interested in moving to the Shenandoah Valley?
- Location, location, location! The Shenandoah Valley is the perfect region to not only enjoy its natural beauty, small town atmosphere, and great mix of culture, it gives you access to major metropolitan areas within a day’s drive. It truly has so much to offer everyone!
