About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Consciousness and Moral Concern

I've almost never come across anyone who addresses the question of consciousness rigorously. Thus, I was exceedingly impressed with Luke Muehlhauser's work for the Open Philanthropy Project. I don't agree with his estimates, but it is the only thorough and truly open-minded effort to explore the question of which creatures should have moral consideration that I've come across.
