On a semi-regular basis, I work with interns from the University of Arizona School of Journalism. I really enjoy working with them. They are full of energy and new ideas. I also love their fresh perspective when they share their outdoor experiences with me. Take a moment to read what some of our future travel/adventure writers have to offer. You'll be glad you did.

The more I experience Arizona, the more I realize how lucky I am to live in such an amazing place! From snowcapped-mountains to saguaro laden deserts, the serene beauty of Arizona never ceases to amaze me. Through my passions for photography and writing, as well as my thirst for adventure, I hope to take you along on an exciting new journey across this wonderful land

Although I’ve lived in Arizona my whole life, the cacti and mountains that surround me never gets old. The desert and all of its unique beauty fascinates me and I can’t wait to tap into some of Arizona’s hidden gems and share my experiences!
Tobey Schmidt (Spring, 2016)
Although I come from the flat lands of Indiana, I now call Arizona home where I love to rock climb, bike, backpack, paddle—and photograph it all. I can’t wait to share my adventures with the readers of Experience Arizona!
Emily Huddleston (Summer, 2015)
Twenty years surrounded by dirt and cactus and I still can’t get enough of the Grand Canyon State. Aside from my passion for the outdoors, you can find me feverishly writing a story or with my nose in a book. Through my internship with Experience Arizona I hope to show you the many adventures that await. Bring on the sunshine!

Hi there! My name is Shannon Higgins and I’m a junior at the University of Arizona studying English and Journalism. My ultimate dream is to travel the world and share those experiences with others, so I’m excited to explore Arizona and take advantage of all Mother Nature has to offer.
Heidi Jaenicke (Fall, 2013)
As a Tucson native I feel that enjoying the outdoors and sunshine come naturally to me. Along with savoring the prevalent beauty of Arizona, cooking and writing are the other two major passions in my life. Throughout my internship at Experience Arizona I plan to explore many of the unique adventures, attractions and eats Arizona has to offer.
Iain Gordon (Summer 2013)
I hail from sunny Phoenix, Arizona and I’ve been crawling, climbing, and paddling across the Grand Canyon State over a decade. I have a passion for the wild and a thirst for thrill and adrenaline. With Experience Arizona I aim to bring the adventure to the page and bring you information on the places you gotta see and things you gotta know.
Rebecca Miller (Spring, 2013)
My name is Rebecca Miller, and I am a senior studying Photography at the University of Arizona. This semester I will be taking part in an internship with Experience Arizona which I am very excited about. I am positive that it will give me the opportunity to explore different areas in Arizona that I haven’t been to yet, as well as hopefully give the readers some new and interesting information that they will find useful in their adventures.
