Amy Marquis

As a writer, editor, photo editor and film director with nearly 15 years of editorial experience — including nine years at National Parks Magazine—Amy Marquis is uniquely poised to access and produce the most compelling stories about the national parks today. In 2013, she began directing the 10-part film series, “National Park Experience,” which creates an invitation to every American, regardless of age, race, religion or economic status, to embrace and become part of “America’s Best Idea.” She is the founder and editor of The Digital Naturalist, a blog and consulting company dedicated to improving the quality of advocacy video storytelling. Her award-winning Yosemite film, The Way Home, toured with Banff, Mountainfilm and Wild & Scenic. Marquis is a co-director of the short film Canyon Song (Mountainfilm 2016) along with Dana Romanoff.
