12 | CONTRIBUTOR'S PROFILE When a guy goes by the name Jet Ski Brian, you know he's really into his personal watercraft. But when you see the photos, you realize this is not a typical man toy. Jet Ski Brian has the most pimped-out, mack-daddy jet ski we've ever seen and it's nothing short of a fishing machine. A resident of Poquoson, Virginia, a small community on Chesapeake Bay, he frequently travels as far as 15 miles out into the Atlantic to fish for striped bass. High gas prices sparked the original idea of a jet ski because his Grady White was getting about one mile per gallon at 35 mph, whereas his jet ski was pulling down 4–5 mpg at the same speed. He fishes more than 100 days a year on his sled and has been featured in The Virginian-Pilot, The Sportsman, and recently on the cover of Fisherman Magazine. He also does online fishing reports online at Atlantic Anglers and Tidalfish. In addition to hunting fish, JS Brian is an accomplished photographer and provided the images for Nick Honachefsky's article about menhaden on page 62. According to JS Brian, his dream is to get sponsored by Yamaha and get them to build a special angling jet ski. Sounds like a great plan.

As a high school junior, she discovered her love of journalism as the editor of her high school newspaper. Oddly enough, her first major story was a controversial one calling for more nutritious lunches at the all-girl Catholic high school she attended. Who knew that as an adult, she would parlay her passion for food into working with chefs who share her commitment to nutrition and sustainably sourced seafood. She went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University with a bachelor's degree in communication and psychology. She was first introduced to Guy Harvey back in 2010, when she worked with him on his Guy Harvey Island Grill restaurant concept. Since then, she has worked with chefs from around the country and notable restaurants including The Oceanaire Seafood Room, Morton's The Steakhouse and Capital Grill just to name a few. When she's not doing her day job, she is paddleboarding on Biscayne Bay, boating with family in Key Largo or acting in community theatre.
