Marshall And Camp Addict
I bring a unique skill set to Camp Addict. As the co-founder, I definitely have more than one job description, but what I enjoy most is writing articles that allow me to share a little bit of what I've learned over thousands of nights of camping. I certainly don't know it all, and am the first to admit when I don't know something, but dang, I do enjoy sharing what RVing knowledge I have accumulated (and continue to learn).
First Stop - Aircraft Mechanic
My first career (many, many moons ago) was as an aircraft mechanic. Aviation was a passion of mine growing up, and through a sequence of events, it became my profession. Though it was a relatively short career (around 8 years), it did teach me a huge amount about how things work. How to not be afraid to tear into a machine. How to critically analyze what is going on.
Explaining So Humans Can Understand
Somewhere along the way I learned how to take complicated and confusing topics and 'translate' them so that someone with no experience can understand. This unique skill has paid off with Camp Addict. I'm able to dive deep into technical topics and explain them in ways that newbies can understand. (It helps I have Kelly as my business partner - everything I write must pass the 'Kelly Test'. If she doesn't understand it, then back to work I go!)
Making Things Work
When I'm not putting fingers to keyboard and producing the high quality content you will only find on Camp Addict, I'm handling the backend stuff that makes the site run. Trust me, there is a lot of that! (Running a successful website/business isn't easy, which may be why there is so much junk on the internet.)
