An illustrator and photographer, Vivienne Flesher (cover) also loves adventure travel. She has swum in Venezuela’s Orinoco River surrounded by pirhana, spent a month on a coffee plantation in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, and hot-air-ballooned over the troglodyte villages of Turkey’s Cappadoccia region. She currently lives in San Francisco, California, with her husband, artist Ward Schumaker.
After graduate school, John Carey (“Model of Success") turned down a job with the Forest Service in Idaho to work at Newsweek magazine in New York City. Now, after three decades as a science journalist at Newsweek,National Wildlife, and Business Week, he’s gone freelance. No regrets, he says, except for losing the bike commute to the office.
Jason Grow(“A Happy Oasis”) is a displaced Californian living in Gloucester, Massachusetts, with his wife, three daughters, dog, and one chicken. Specializing in photographing exceptionally accomplished people, his clients include Time, Reader’s Digest, Barron’s, and Forbes, among others. When not wrangling photo subjects or taxiing his children, he can be found impersonating a surfer at a nearby beach.
Katharine Gammon (“Trash Is Treasure”) lives in Santa Monica, California, where she writes about science for Wired, Popular Science, Nature, and FastCompany. Her hunt for science stories extends around the globe, where she has chased sheep, photographed bats, and ridden ostriches—the meanest creatures she has ever met.
