John Mosbaugh aka Moze is a SF Bay Area heretic and writer who's been hauling himself out to Black Rock City since the Nebulous Entity first beckoned him to check out this phenomenon known as Burning Man. Moze is a "Life Collector" who scribbles down encounters with you to share on the blog. He enjoys the hyper reality of that week in the desert enough to keep coming back. He's been on the Burning Man web team since aught two and has written for Piss Clear and the YEP (Yahoo Education Project). He doesn't speak for the org and he finds you fascinating. He celebrates you and loves it when you take away ideas from Burning Man and share them with the rest of the world. He likes to make grilled cheese on Burn Night afternoon and gift it to you because you're probably hungry. Moze is a big fan of fire, art, freedom and community.

    From Kim Matthews, Marketing Coordinator for Reno Airport.

    “”We’ve had lots of great reactions to the exhibit from our customers and employees. Including the traveler that was on his blue tooth this afternoon. I over heard him leaving a voice mail to a friend that went something like this,”

    “Hey, I’m in Reno and I am looking at a Burning Man exhibit in the airport. I’m sure that I’ll find you in one of these photos…yep, there you are. You look like you’re having a great time. Call me.””
