Greg Eck is a Washington, D.C. area resident, former Capitol Hill staffer, founder of the defunct social criticism blog The Loquitor, and an unrepentant political junkie. He holds a B.A in English & Rhetoric from DePaul University and an M.A. in Literature from the College of Charleston/The Citadel. Mr. Eck has worked in a diverse range of jobs over his career, from college administrator and teacher to government contractor and programmer, with a few stints as a restaurant cook in between. Today he earns his living as a technical writer in the private sector. When not engaging in activism or debating strangers on hot button issues, you can find him writing about society, health, and ways to advance causes that will protect our future. Though born and raised in the Midwest, Mr. Eck has lived in every major region of the country, thanks to a dominant strain of nomadism in his DNA. Experiencing a wide swath of cultures and classes across the United States—as well as extensive travel abroad—has only stoked his passion for making the world a better place via meaningful action and policy-based reforms.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
