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.

On the Plus Side

Thanks to everyone who has been supportive after my recent excommunication. Not everything is a negative; I still get emails like this:
"Before I go any further, I think it would be an injustice if I did not express my gratitude for everything you have shared with the activist community, and the impact this has had on how I approach activism, and perhaps more deeply, how I live my life. After I recovered from the initial embarrassment and guilt from what I now realize to be myopic vegan viewpoints, I feel that my life and work will take on a new meaning.
"As someone who wants to be as effective an advocate for animals as possible, this will make a tremendous impact. But I am also coming to realize just how universal suffering is in our world, how it is the guiding principle for doing good. These ideas will permeate into all aspects of my life."

Thanks again to everyone!
