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.

Sustainable Activism Webinar

Thanks to Christine, In Defense of Animals invited me to be a presenter for their Sustainable Activism Campaign. You can watch the video on YouTube.

Matt I'm so grateful to you for your thoughtful and very impactful presentation. On Tuesday I'm leading a "Healthy Eating Club" in my community and based on your talk I'm going to focus the conversation on the "how and the why" of replacing chicken and eggs in our diet. Your talk changed the food I'll serve, too-- we'll be having a vegan version now of chicken noodle soup, and a vegan chicken salad. I'll email you for a copy of your Powerpoint. Thank you for everything you do, this is more helpful than you know.
