Jess McGlothlin is happiest on the road in the gritty, far-off corners of the world.  She sees her mission as a simple one: tell stories.  Working as a freelance photographer and writer in the outdoor industry; while on assignment in the past year she’s learned how to throw spears at coconuts in French Polynesia, dodge saltwater crocodiles in Cuba, navigate uninvited sharks in Samoa, and eat all manner of unidentifiable food.  Based in southwestern Montana, she can usually be found trying to juggle a fly rod, a notebook, and a camera.
