Christopher J. Millington grew up in the Los Angeles megalopolis. He has lived throughout the western United States and traveled throughout North America, Russia, China, and Mongolia. His education and career in archaeology began in 2002 at the University of New Mexico and he is currently a senior archaeologist at an environmental consulting firm in Pasadena, California. His secret identity as a writer and artist is inspired by his interests in nature, culture, consciousness, and the weirdness between. (Artwork: 'Asymptote AstralTravel' by Christopher Millington).
