M.T. Elliott likes finding the pockets of wild that survive in urban environments, but yearns for more alone time in the woods. Among other jobs, he writes and edits for trade level publications focused on the outdoor and textile industries. Ages ago he established a bicycle program at The University of Texas. An unaccomplished athlete, he only recently gave up on the notion he could play major league baseball. M.T. is particularly adept at hearing uncommon birds while running with headphones in.
