Erik Vance is a science writer native to the Bay Area replanted in Mexico City as a non-native invasive. Like many in his field, he couldn’t really hack it as a scientist and now works as a professional groupie. That said, “science groupie” is just the best job he can imagine, especially in Mexico. A contributing editor at Discover Magazine, his work often focuses on interesting characters in ocean and brain sciences.

He often claims the m-dash is superior to the comma but secretly he just wishes the semicolon would come back into fashion.
