National Wildlife Federation – Photo Editor for Ranger Rick and Photo Director for Children’s Publications
I have the COOLEST job. I get to find and pick all the really neat photographs in our kids’ magazines. Who wouldn’t want to be able to learn all about animals by looking at the world’s best photos of them every day? I work with many of the top photographers in the world who love our magazines because they know they are reaching curious kids and teaching them about important things. Many of these photographers read Ranger Rick as kids, too, and remember. It would be really cool to actually go where all these animals live— but I will leave that to all those tough photographers out there. I get to sleep in my own bed every night— and dream about the animals and where they live.
