Andrew Spellman

Andrew's passions lie with the outdoors, writing, and good political debate, which is why he's decided to combine all three. His outdoor writing career was born in a small, sophomore-level class at West Virginia University in 2014, and it has blossomed since. He now joins the Project Upland team where he will be covering current issues and affairs, keeping folks up to date with what's happening with Congress, state governments, international movements, and more.
