Hi, my name is Emerald.

Working with strangers awkward... but I bet we wont be strangers for long. Let's get to know each other. I'll start.

I fell in love with Idaho's Salmon River at age four and have been trying to get sand out of my hair ever since.

I guide flyfishing and whitewater for Outdoor Adventure River Specialists.

I write and photograph what I care about: rivers, guiding, mountain towns, cowdog pups, women in the outdoors, big adventures and everyday wonders.

I organize events. Good ones.

I wrangle words for social media copy, fundraising campaigns and community organization as Executive Director of the Redside Foundation.

I read the Oprah magazine every. single. month. Cover to finish. We can't be outdoorsy all the time, right? #oprahandgayleforever

Now it's your turn.
