Steve Dustcircle

Biography

Originally from Chicago, Steve Dustcircle comes from a background in religious ministry and music performance, but now has his hand in many forms of activism, mostly focused on free thought and human rights. There is not much he hasn't done; there is little that he hasn't read about.

Steve contributes to The Good Men Project, OpEd News, Counter Currents, and Ex-ChristianNet. He lives in Columbus, OH with his frugal-blogger wife, and loves good coffee, cold lager, and stimulating conversation.
