Matthew Ladner – Short Bio

Matthew resigned from his full-time position at Soteria-Alaska to pursue his education in microbiology, but remains an active contributor and supporter of the community and its “being with” ideology.  Matthew loves examining nature, cares for the quality of life and acceptance of all creatures on Earth, and obsessively defends the rights of the bacteria on his dirty dishes.
