Cameron graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA and received a Master of Fine Arts, Poetry, from the University of Arizona in 2004 where he also taught a creative writing workshop for Voices 110 Degrees, a writing program for at risk youth in Tucson, AZ.
Hitting the road in search of teaching opportunities and trout, he worked for two years in Crested Butte, CO as a fly fishing guide at Dragonfly Anglers before settling in for the long haul at Taylor Creek Fly Shops in Basalt, Colorado where he spends his summers guiding and winters in Wallowa County, Oregon, implementing Fishtrap Story Lab.
While some of his favorite jobs have included working for Camp Lincoln for Boys and guiding fishing trips, he also loves teaching creative writing.
