Up until recently, I was a selfish blogger. I wanted to keep all my best stories for my readers on my own site.
But now that I've accumulated enough experiences and connections in the Southern California outdoors, and because I'm endlessly curious, it's not so uncomfortable for me to branch out and come up with other stories to tell, for other audiences.
I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be writing for KCET, a local news source that I respect so deeply. In conducting my research and interviews for the few articles I've worked on so far, I recall my days as a teen reporter for my high school, as editor of my college newspaper. I could've easily become a journalist.
Instead, I took a circuitous route to get here.
But that long path has given me lots of stories to tell, and a little perspective.
Here's my latest for KCET's SoCal Wanderer blog, also featuring my photos (click here or the screenshot below):
