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.

The Perfect Quote for Me & My Book

When I write something I usually think it is very important
and that I am a very fine writer.
I think this happens to everyone
but there is one corner of my mind
in which I know very well what I am,
which is a small, a very small writer.
I swear I know it.
But that doesn’t matter much to me.

–Natalia Ginsburg, My Vocation (Translated by Dick Davis)

Came across that quote an hour before hiking here.
