A Little About Me
My name is George Mizuk (Miziuk); I am an American of Ukrainian heritage, born in Trenton, New Jersey, lived in the surrounding areas, including Ewing Township, New Jersey and Hamilton Township, Mercer County, New Jersey. Graduated from Steinert High School in 1980.
When I was growing up, I was active in Plast, a Ukrainian scouting organization. As an adult, I was active in the Ukrainian American Veterans organization, as National Adjutant and New Jersey State Department Commander.
In 1997 I moved to Daytona Beach, Florida, which is well known for Daytona Beach Bike Week and the Daytona 500 NASCAR race. I like Junior, not that dang Jeff Gordon! I am a fan of the Daytona Cubs minor league baseball team.

- Associated Content (Yahoo) I always retain my "rights" to my articles, so my material does not belong to Yahoo. CC License granted for anyone who wants to use material connected with my byline.
- Examiner-dot-com - I write articles about recreation and tourism. (Apparently Wikipedia does not allow links to the site)
- Tripadvisor: Daytona Beach Since Tripadvisor is a purely commercial site, I only contribute sparingly there. However, I have managed to build up snippets of travel info about Daytona Beach quite nicely.
