Hi. My name is Hunter Stanford and this is my writing portfolio. Some of the work here had me get out of the house and tuck in my shirt and some was just for fun. Whatever the task, everything here is original work.

Though I have a BS in Journalism from the University of Florida, I spent the last few years in school for design and front-end web development. This site, as well as my design portfolio were hand coded using HTML/CSS and Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for graphics.

Full-time coding isn't for me though. Writing is what I enjoy so the choice seems obvious. I'm getting back into my roots and don't plan to look back. Cheers!

These are a few pieces I've written for publications based out of Alexandria, VA, Austin, TX and Chicago, IL. I've had a great time covering anything from music festivals, book releases, theater openings and tons of disc golf course reviews.

Hey Hunter! came about earlier this year when I needed a change from where things were going in Austin, TX, and permanently re-located to a farm in rural New Mexico. I wanted to blog about traveling North America and meeting different people.

I've spent the last few months trying to get a piece into my favorite humor website, McSweeny's Internet Tendency. Though they have yet to be published, I'm putting them up anyway because I had so much fun putting them together. Someday, even decades into the future, someone somewhere will pay me to write things like this.

Stayed tuned...
