Hi, I’m Melissa!

I am a marine technician at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. As a science communicator, I write about living and working on research ships. For more of my writing, check out the blog for SIO’s newest research ship, the R/V Sally Ride. Read more from me here.

My husband is a brewer, and I write about my (sometimes rocky) relationship with beer…

I travel a lot and like to share my experiences…

I review movies and TV, usually in the science fiction genre…

I write essays for fun too, and am working on a novel…
