J. Kent Hastings is a novelist, feature film editor, writer for Mondo Cult magazine, computer programmer, and developer of websites.

During the 1960s, he went on family road trips as a kid throughout the U.S., including Big Bear in California, Bryce Canyon in Utah, the Great Lakes in Michigan, and the beach at Ensenada, Mexico. And he drank plenty of that damned TANG crap during the Apollo moon missions. His dad had sheep, grew corn in the back yard and raised chickens for eggs while his little brother played on a Buckeydome climber in the 1970s. He learned the basics of photography in his dad's photo studio.

At Diablo Valley College, Hastings majored in electronics and got his advanced FCC ham license, WA6ZFY, which is still good today. In the early 1980s, he started his working life programming IBM mainframes. He finished off the 1980s as a door-to-door canvasser, passenger van driver and sometime field manager at a non-profit organization.

During the 1990s, he worked many a Dilbertish office temp job in the Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chico, and Las Vegas areas. He was active on the cypherpunks list and wrote for libertarian print publications.

Hastings currently lives in Nevada, and is an advocate for Permaculture, a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, environmental design, construction and integrated water resources management that develops sustainable architecture, regenerative and self-maintained habitat and agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.
