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.

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.
