Biography & works: I've been researching and writing on the nuclear age since 2006 when I joined a grassroots effort that defeated a government plan to carry out a reckless military explosive experiment—code-named 'Divine Strake'—on the Nevada Test Site. My analyses, once freely available on my former (2011-2014) website,, span a spectrum of nuclear topics including 'Mighty Oak' (a nuclear test blunder), nuclear spacecraft re-entries, global nuclear testing fallout, radiation monitoring in the nuclear age, radiation victim compensation (e.g., the Irene Allen case), and 'nuclear guinea pigs,' including the Rongelapese. Since 2014, I've been expanding my research into the most compelling of these nuclear topics and formalizing those works into self-published books. My books can be sampled or purchased here.
