Jamie Grove is a recovering marketing executive who hopes that one day he can just write long-winded books and take pictures of beautiful people, amazing creatures, and fascinating places. Until that magical day comes, Jamie is very happy to be the cofounder at Mini Museum. When he’s not preparing dinosaur skin or Martian lava, Jamie handles most aspects of the day-to-day business. He makes his home in the Washington DC area.
Jamie’s eclectic background includes stints in the fields of programming, marketing, executive management, creative development, writing, children’s publishing, Internet development, the energy sector, scientific manufacturing, photography, character licensing, direct mail, consumer goods, crowdfunding, startups, unicorn meat, and dinosaur bones.
Over the last few years, he has dedicated himself to the Mini Museum, where he handles most of the business side including marketing and operations. He is also the principal photographer and behind-the-scenes writer, having to date written five books and numerous articles related to the Mini Museum. He is currently writing the Museum’s first trade book, Relics, coming in 2021 from Weldon Owen. Of his current work he says, “Considering the books and the fantastic specimens in our collection, I guess in many ways I am living my dream of creating beautiful stories about the universe around us.”
