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.

Personal pain update and new sky pictures

A year ago, I gave this update on the so-far horrible year of 2021. Since then, an antidepressant (well, two, as the first one had a side effect I just couldn't get past) has turned things around. That included helping me get totally off Oxy. 

I was still on the maximum dose of the medicine for nerve pain (first Gabapentin, then Pregabalin). But about a month ago, I moved that dose down a bit. It was kinda rough for a few days (I had been on the max dose for over a year-and-a-half) and the pain is a bit worse, but overall worth it.

With that said (and we continue to plug away at the book), here are two recent pictures:
