Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz.

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.
