In October, 2011, I created The Left Turn Network as an online vehicle with which to share my ideas and creative works. As part of this effort, I began the flagship channel – now known as Explorin’ with George – YouTube

This web site opened around 2013.  In April, 2013, I created- what is now known as- The Jax Life Channel – on YouTube- which focused on the local politics, government, history and culture of Jacksonville, Florida (my city of residence for over 30 years). The channel will remain in operation thru 2022 (the 200th anniversary of the founding of the city). In 2022, in a special broadcast, the channel will be dedicated to the People of the City of Jacksonville, and I will then end broadcast operations on that channel.

Explorin’ with George

In May, 2019, I moved to El Cajon, California.  I began broadcasting the first “Explorin’ with George” shows later that Summer to share my films where I experience all that San Diego County has to offer.

Here is a show for you to enjoy 🙂 

On January 1, 2021, I filmed portions of the East and West exteriors of The San Diego Convention Center. Views include an MTS trolley approaching the Gaslamp Quarter station (one of 2 MTS stations that serve the center), an east staircase, a window view of a convention hall, the Coronado bridge, the marina district, the San Diego bayfront, a plaque which describes the center, and other amazing vistas. Interested in San Diego history? Join us on “History San Diego!” on Facebook Groups.

The Explorin’ series is a great way to begin to see the historical and cultural places all around the county, to share them with you, and also to learn – in preparation for the upcoming 2nd series on the flagship channel :

    History San Diego!

In 2020, I announced that production of the  “History San Diego!” series will begin in the Fall of 2021 – once pandemic restrictions are lifted- which will enable full filming projects (indoors and outdoors). Each episode of this series will be a comprehensive documentary of the historic place or moment. 

I also curate historic films, images, illustrations, and archives.

The films appear in playlists on the flagship channel. 

It is my hope that these words have given you some insight into what I’m up to. I encourage you to please enjoy my shows and if you have any interest in creative collaboration, business opportunities, or have questions, please feel free to reach out.
