About the author

Matt is the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent is his blockbuster The Accidental Activist, which Amazon claims is by his wife Anne Green. So it goes. Currently, he is President of One Step for Animals; previously, he was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before Matt’s unfortunate encounter with activism, he was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). His hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. He lives in Tucson with Anne, along with no dogs, no cats, no guinea pigs, and only the occasional snake or scorpion.

Thanks Mike!

Mike Wolf of Compassion Over Killing (above) and I both spoke and tabled at the recent AZ Veg Food Fest. Yesterday, he kindly sent me this email:

Someone came up to my table Sunday afternoon, probably shortly after your talk ended. She said that in the past, she was a follower of [a different approach], but lately she was having trouble being 100% vegan. She has been feeling a lot of negativity lately, and didn't know what to do. She said that after hearing both my and your talks, she was feeling much more positive about the movement, and that she can continue with it. She was happy to hear us say that it doesn't have to be an all or nothing thing. She was pretty relieved about it.
