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. Currently he is working on his first book, Suggestible You, with National Geographic Books.
He often claims the m-dash is superior to the comma but secretly he just wishes the semicolon would come back into fashion.
