Dr. Jason G. Goldman is a science journalist and editor, expedition leader, and public speaker. He first began writing about wildlife at age six. He drew a horribly unrealistic depiction of a frog and wrote, “A frog’s eyes are on the top of its head. It can see small bugs that are good to eat.” Which, to be fair, was at least mostly accurate.

Jason has since written about human and animal behavior, wildlife biology, conservation, and ecology for a variety of local, national, and international outlets, including Scientific American, National Geographic, Los Angeles Magazine, Biographic, Alta Magazine, The Washington Post, BBC Earth, Hakai Magazine, Slate, Salon, Gizmodo, Audubon, KCET, and elsewhere. He wrote an Animals blog for Gawker Media’s science and sci-fi site io9, served as a staff contributor for the Earth Touch News Network, and wrote news stories twice each week for Conservation Magazine for two and a half years.

Jason served as co-editor of Science Blogging: The Essential Guide (Yale University Press, 2016), and as editor for the fifth edition of The Open Laboratory (Lulu, 2011), an annual printed anthology of the best science writing online.

His BA, MA, and PhD degrees were all completed in the psychology department at the University of Southern California, where he was an Annenberg Foundation Fellow.
