I am a writer, teacher, and scholar who lives in Northern California. When I'm abroad, I usually tell people I am from California rather than the United States. I'm not just trying to be clever, I actually identify that way. I was born in the Bay Area in June of the Summer of Love and currently reside in San Francisco, where my settler ancestor I. C. C. Russ disembarked with his family from the Loo Choo in the fortuitous year of 1847. My roots lie in this rootless place. That said, I spent a good ten years on the east coast, first at Yale and then in the freelance writer trenches of New York City, where I wrote tons about music, philosophy, fringe culture, \ media and technology. In 2010 I returned to university to get a PhD in all this weirdness, a degree in Religion that led to my book High Weirdness. My essays have appeared in a couple dozen books, I have spoken all over the world, and my writings have been translated into a dozen languages.
