Hi there — 

I'm Amy, a science Writer and California native.

Before becoming a reporter, I studied the delicate proteins that make jellyfish glow, and the distribution of coral reef fishes across Melanesia.  

Now I cover environment from an ecologist's perspective.

My work has appeared in The AtlanticScience, and Discover, among others. I am the founding editor of Hawkmoth magazine, and currently cover ocean conservation as the web editor at Oceana.
