Nushin Huq, Founder of Between 2 Pines Magazine
Between 2 Pines founder, Nushin Huq, grew up spending time in the outdoors, but went on her first overnight camping trip after she had kids. The family’s first tent camping trip was an organized event at a city park. Once they survived that trip, Nushin knew the sky was the limit.
Fast forward several years and Nushin spends her free time organizing outdoor trips and spending school vacations on road trips with her family, camping at state and national parks throughout the country. It has become her family's favorite vacation activity. Over the years, she’s met countless families that want to go camping or partake in other outdoor activities but are overwhelmed by planning their first outdoor trip. She also found that most outdoor literature is aimed at people that already have a certain level of expertise with the outdoors.
Nushin has a background in journalism and worked several years covering energy and the environment. She wants to use her years of reporting experience to teach others about basics of camping and the outdoors as well as provide a platform to bring a diversity of voices and perspectives to outdoor literature.
