Finding that common ground in writing has been an experience in itself. In the past year, I quit contributing to the local Alt-Weekly and started covering Conservation, Environment and the Outdoors for Wilhelm Cortez at The Good Men Project. I learned a great deal about how to operate wordpress and submit my work to their online periodical. He allowed me to grow comfortable with covering a lot of material that could potentially stir emotions in regards to wildlife management practices with the challenge of presenting things in a manner that would relate to a broader audience. Then Jeff Holmes of Northwest Sportsman Magazine helped me make my way back into print in what is still today one of my favorite publications. This developed into a few memorable fishing trips and connections that have made my contributions to the magazine all worthwhile. I can't thank these two mentors enough for developing my experience with writing.
Continuing on my expedition, this Fall I'm also going to be contributing for a popular outdoor website called "Wide Open Spaces." I look forward to furthering my learning experiences as an outdoor explorer and continuing to build new relationships with people that share the same passion.
