Rob McCorkle

I am a Houston native and professional journalist who has enjoyed a varied and interesting career in Louisiana, Texas and New Mexico as a newspaper reporter and editor, book author, magazine publisher and contributing writer, and government media relations specialist in the areas of conservation and higher education.  Such vocations require a healthy sense of adventure and willingness to “check out” new places, people and trends. My wife and I retired to Las Cruces in 2016, where I continue to pursue freelance writing and photography about subjects that intrigue me, such as craft breweries, wineries, craft distilleries and the cultural and natural history of la frontera.  Las Cruces has proved a perfect fit, both personally and professionally.
