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.

Book Recommendations

In addition to New Scientist, Wired, and MIT's Technology Review, some books Ellen, Anne, and I are reading this summer include:

The Hidden Brain

Predictably Irrational  (scroll down)

Naked Statistics (Prepping Ellen for her stats class this fall; reviewing my stats from grad school)

All highly recommended, along with the granddaddy of human behavior / decision-making's book: Daniel Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow, discussed here in context by our friends at Less Wrong.
