WadeLivingstonI grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina, near the tiny town of Cullowhee. At 31, I left my job as a college professor to go back to school to learn (read: unlearn, relearn) how to write. I just earned my master’s degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism.

Immersive reporting and writing excite me, and I enjoy writing narratives, features and profiles. I’ll jump at the chance to travel, to hop on a plane and see the world, visit the big city — but I’m a small-town guy at heart. I’d like to tell stories about the folks in rural America, and I hope to travel all over the country to do so.

When I’m not working, you can find me watching college football, reading, making my own hickory-smoked barbecue (pulled pork, brisket, ribs, smoked wings and smoked cheeseburgers, more specifically), strumming the guitar and hanging out with my much better half, Melissa, and my dog, Chevy.
