Nicholas Caleb

Nicholas operates in a realm somewhere between law, politics, activism, and academia. He has degrees in biological sciences, law, and technology policy. In addition, he's worked in positions such as policy advisor for Vandana Shiva's NGO The Research Foundation for Science, Technology, & Ecology, field organizer for Democratic candidates in Washington County, and had a brief stint working for Chief Judge Ann Aiken in the U.S. District Court of Oregon. Currently, Nicholas works as a professor of government, cultural geography, and public speaking at Concordia University. Like a lot of people who write for BO, he loves beer, thoughtful discussion, and trying to make the world a better place.
