Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.
