Outdoor Editorial Work
Whether it's outdoor feature stories for magazines like Florida Sportsman's Shallow Water Angler, The Fly Fish Journal, or Farm and Ranch Living, my outdoor lifestyle and nature-inspired essays draw the reader into the journey.
My interviews, reviews, and how-to articles bring a subject to life for your audience.
Florida Sportsman Shallow Water Angler
The fishing feature Essay "Two Dollars for All Day" celebrates saltwater pier fishing life and the people we meet on the water.
The fishing feature essay "Back to the Beginner's Mind" describes the angler's penchant for thinking that "the grass is greener" somewhere else. It also emphasizes the importance of coming to the water with fresh eyes so wonder doesn't escape us.
The outdoor lifestyle feature essay "A Season In The Field" explores the presence of life, death, and beauty over a winter season as a farm hand. I worked during the pumpkin harvest and Christmas tree period.
"The MCV Q&A: Challenge Accepted" article was an interview I recorded, transcribed, and organized with Chance York. Chance is the host of Twin Cities PBS series called "Outside Chance."
