Amy T. Granite is an American journalist based in Portland, Oregon. A Southern California-native, Granite earned her B.A. in Literature and Writing Studies from CSU San Marcos in 2005 and embarked on a decade of decadence, chronicling her life as a pleasure seeker (AKA lifestyle reporting). Hundreds of articles, blown-out pants' seams and unpaid travel/expense reports later, in 2017 Granite finally accepted her fate/"real job" as a news desk editor in the Pacific Northwest. Not long after cleaning up her mess, Granite flew the corporate-coop in 2020 and got back in business for herself. Contact: email@example.com.
