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.

Lost Perspective

In a broader discussion of certain people's unwillingness to allow uncomfortable truths to be spoken, One Step co-founder Joe Espinosa makes the point that is so often forgotten:

"What current meat eaters think of us is far more important than what other vegans think of us. Current meat eaters are the ones in a position to directly reduce suffering."
