I have been lucky, as Robert Frost once put it, to “unite my avocation and my vocation.”
Over the years I have held nearly every job in the magazine industry, from freelance reporter to editor-in-chief, from ad sales rep to group publisher. As a contributor to numerous local, regional, and national magazines, I have covered a wide array of topics, including politics, crime, music, the environment, science, sports, and culture. My general-interest features, columns, and essays have appeared in Atlanta Magazine, Montana Magazine, Travel & Leisure, Gray’s Sporting Journal, Men’s Journal, American Angler and many others. As an editor, I have held the top masthead position at eight different publications for three different media companies, including Game & Fish Publications, Emmis Communications, and Morris Communications. Most recently, during nearly 14 years with the Morris Sporting Group, I served as editor or editor-in-chief of Saltwater Fly Fishing, American Angler, and Gray’s Sporting Journal. From 2007 through 2017, I also served as either the general manager, group publisher, or editorial director of the group. A lifelong outdoorsman with a passion for fly fishing, hunting, wilderness travel, traditional archery, canoeing, and powder skiing, I have been lucky, as Robert Frost once put it, to “unite my avocation and my vocation.”
