Alexandra S. Malloy
Born and raised on Cape Cod, I love to travel and explore stories wherever I go. I am a graduate of the Northeastern University School of Journalism. I hope to pursue environmental/outdoors reporting and endurance/ recreational related topics in the future.
I take pride in staying well-informed and believe it is necessary as a journalist and a global citizen. I've explored reporting and regions of the country through my work at the Sierra Club's SIERRA magazine as well as the Appalachian Mountain Club's AMC Outdoors magazine. My time at the The Boston Globe, as well as community newspaper, The Fenway News, and my student paper, The Huntington News, have helped me to build a solid foundation on news and local reporting.
Currently, I am the communications coordinator at Sunday River Resort in Maine, where I work on public relations and communicating the brand of the mountain through our blog, the First Chair.
Journalism has let me tell the stories how public art can be used for both public engagement and conservation, an oyster man, a woman who own's a 43-foot inflatable whale, and some kick-ass surfers who brave the Atlantic mid-winter.
I've had the chance to report from Spain, covering how the economic crisis has affected the country's horse populations from Barcelona to the rising feminist art scene in Madrid.
I've covered homicide trials from beginning to end and breaking news. I've seen how science is advancing on my campus and pioneering work in cancer detection. I've covered a local Ironman competitor and his SUP/kayak race, and a crazy group of bikers who rode across the U.S.
Currently I am blogging about ocean conservation and biodiversity and freelancing.
My favorite novelist is Haruki Murakami.
I love art history, especially contemporary art.
I ski, run, bike, paddle, hike and ride horses.
True crime podcasts are my go-to listen, and documentaries my go-to watch.
My grandma dated William Shatner, she calls him Bill
