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.

Conversation

Ran into a neighbor I rarely see. He talked about how his family doesn't eat beef anymore, "because it isn't healthy." He said something about not wanting cows to be killed, and then added, "You'd prefer we not kill anything, huh."

I replied, "Everyone dies. What matters is how much they suffer while alive."

Him: "Umh." Long pause. "Huh. Yeah." Could really see the gears turning.
