For the last 6 1/2 years Jason Wells, of Staunton, Va., has worked as an industrial refrigeration technician, traveling all over the U.S. and to Canada a couple of times. He is on the road 20-25 days a month. Wells and wife Nikki have a 16-month-old daughter, Phaedra Anne. Wells intends to keep his job and schedule for a few more years as he trains to be an outdoor communicator. Over the next few years he will complete the North American School of Outdoor Writing program, take some photography courses and, in a few weeks, will be going to Pennsylvania for his first outdoor videography course. He attends as many outdoor shows and events as he can in an effort to meet people. “By the time I am able to quit traveling and resume a more normal work schedule I would like to be well enough established in the outdoor world, via writing, photography, videography, or any other means, to work part time in a field I have always loved. I view being a student member of the OWAA as a great stepping stone toward my goal!” Contact him at email@example.com.
