Richard Hawkins was born in Aurora, Colorado and grew up in Littleton, Colorado. He has been married for twenty-five years, and worked for the same Aerospace Company for twenty-six. His primary interests over the years have been his family, sociology, mastering his survival skills, windsurfing, music, politics, raising wolves, art of all types, mycology, permaculture, archeological anomalies, geo-politics and staying gainfully employed; not necessarily in that order.
He often describes himself as a separate subspecies of human - 'Eclecticus-Iconoclastimus'. His primary driving force is his unwavering belief that as sovereign citizens we are each responsible not only for our own beliefs and actions, but where those beliefs and actions take us in life: "That the truly intelligent person learns to determine what that consequence might be and then acts accordingly. Our individual actions always affect far more than we can imagine."
