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.

Grumpy

Just a quick note: I only recently realized that the world (media) is actively set up to make everyone grumpy all the time. And it isn't just the news and social media - many comedians are just bitching about every little thing. And most "serious" movies and TV and books are very dark and unhappy.

Mindfulness has helped me realize this. I don't have to be angry at everything. Unless the anger is actually going to change something, being angry just makes the world a worse place.
