I was born and raised in the dead heat of Arizona, but these days I live in San Francisco, where I am an investigative researcher and activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I'm also a freelance reporter who hasn't been able to shake the habit of committing journalism in San Diego (see "Dave Maass Day" left).

I've also covered San Diego Comic-Con for the last five years, most recently for RollingStone.com.
